Frühlings Erwachen

Staging: Suna Gürler

*** Youth Play Prize at the 38 Heidelberg Stückemarkt ***

When adolescents and adults talk about sex together, it's quickly - stop! Because: Sex is considered dangerous, still. Frank Wedekind's scandalous play Frühlings Erwachen was censored in Berlin in 1891, but published in Zurich.  Frühlings Erwachen by Suna Gürler and Lucien Haug from the year 2020 cancels itself: "Frühlings Erwachen is cancelled - but we have to talk.

Unintentionally catapulted into isolation by the corona lockdown, the team of young and adult people now returns to contact with omniscience and ignorance and plunges into the danger zone of shame, curiosity, experiment and playful power, which has more to do with sexy poses on Instagram or instant pose sex on Youporn.
