A WAKENING is a feminist reinvention of process and performance as theatrical community event. The project is a radical deconstruction of Wedekind's Frühlings Erwachen (Spring Awakening) that gives voice to the complex women characters whose stories are drowned out by those of young men. A WAKENING is a response to the generational silence and shame around the sexuality of women, in particular young women, that have been amplified in our isolated, media-saturated culture.
