An emotional coming of age within a silent society.
Spring Awakening is set in the twilight zone between child and adult, outside of school hours, at rehearsal. Within the walls of a school stage, fiction and reality ignite each other and a group of young people rehearse for life. They discover the world, each other, themselves and the urges and perils that go with them. All this while their bodies overgrow them and grow faster than their heads can keep up.
Boundaries are drawn as quickly as they are made unclear. What feels confusing hurts as much as it salves. Especially when choices about your own body are determined by others. Especially when far from everything is negotiable. Especially when you’re not good at feeling better. Especially when everything can still change. And especially when it’s all just theater.
“Young violence with surplus talent who pay tribute to an old classic with infectious enthusiasm. WOLF WOLF is living proof that the future of quality theater is assured.” – Gregory | curator Jonge Harten
