NEW PROJECT
by federspiel’s Philine


SPRING AWAKENING
- A TEENAGE TRAGEDY


(Frühlings Erwachen -
Eine Jugendtragödie)

Meanwhile in Berlin… After almost two years of a COVID-induced break from theatre, Philine has just started working on her newest project - a deconstructed and fragmented adaption of Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind.

Using a collage of various stylistic and medial tools, the play connects the experiences of today's adolescents with the late 19th-century's scandalous drama.

NEW COLLABORATION

THE BACCHAE

What do you get when you mix a cello, some diesel, straw, Euripides and a plot of land in Somerset? An R&D of a radical new adaptation of The Bacchae, written for outdoor rural touring.

This late May, we tested our first draft with a group of multi-skilled actor-devisors and the Afro-Celtic band Baka Beyond

BACK TO ANNA

A crisp, multi-rolling play about the forgotten female voices and lived experiences Leo Tolstoy co-opted to write Anna Karenina. We explore authorship as power and writing as negotiation, merging sharp text with vibrant movement.

It's been a journey.

 

We began our research and writing in 2018; we held a staged reading in 2020, right before lockdown.

This March, London's Pushkin House hosted us for a COVID-safe R&D, filming and live Q&A of Act I.

This project was possible due to the generous support of the Carne Trust.

And, of course, the brilliant creatives who have joined us: Sanda Bourenane (Anna), Will Bishop (Leo) and Zak Nemorin (movement director).

WHAT
NEXT?

We are now looking for a home for a full production.
