Frühlingserwachen or Spring Awakening is a beautiful theater style performance, incorporating a unique mix of ballet, hip-hop, acrobatics and dance.

The story line follows the confused growing up of 14 year old Wendla and the reason that leads to her tragic death. Her mother, acts as the society and punish her for her frivolous actions.

The theater performance is executed by three young and talented body artists, united under the name “Generation Porn”. The performance is based on the literature work of the German playwright Frank Wedekind, famous for his expressionistic style and his major influence on the development of epic theater. Through his work, Wedekind often criticized bourgeois attitude towards sex and this criticism is mirrored in Frühlingserwachen. The play is directed by Markus Pabst, known from other great productions such as SOAP, CLIQUE,VIVACE, 100%, LA, CAESAR TWINS.

The performance in a way implies that even today, a100 years later, growing up is still not as easy. That very play was first shown in Berlin in 1906 and it then aimed to show the difficulty of young people when left alone with their problems and the personal tragedies they have to go through on the way of adulthood. In a way, the society stigmatizes the young pushing them directly to an emotional catastrophe.
