Armel Roussel’s “Spring Awakening” at Vaba Lava in April

April 10, 2018 / April 13, 2018

Four performances of this play are planned in Tallinn on April 10-13 as part of the French curated programme of Vaba Lava.

Spring Awakening is an adaption of the play by the same title of the controversial German playwright Frank Wedekind. Frank Wedekind is one of the most daring dramatic spirits in Germany, who set out in quest of new truths. In Spring Awakening, his first major play, Frank Wedekind laid bare the shams of morality in reference to sexuality, especially attacking the ignorance surrounding the sex life of the child. He called his drama ‘the tragedy of childhood’, dedicating his work to parents and teachers. Even if Spring Awakening was written more than 100 years ago, for the French-Belgian director of the piece Armel Roussel, the core story of troubled teenage sexuality is as topical and intriguing as it was at the beginning of the last century. It is already the fourth time in his professional career that he has turned to Wedekind.
