Choreographer Lynne Page talks about what she wants to achieve with the movement in Spring Awakening
Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Ink, Albion) directs the first London revival of Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik's (American Psycho: A New Musical, Almeida Theatre and Broadway) acclaimed musical, based on the ground-breaking and once-banned 19th century play by Frank Wedekind.
Lynne Page: I just want to start with, why are the actors moving? What's the story they're gonna tell? My name is Lynne Page and I am the choreographer on Spring Awakening. If there's three options where something is easy on the eye, something is a little bit interesting, and something is quite obscure, I'll always go for option three. We have a very interesting set. I like the challenges that it will bring about. And I'm quite interested in the world turning upside down, and a lot of anti-gravity movement that will represent the turmoil that all these young minds are in. I think it's underestimated how much the last two years had an impact on our young, and I want this production to give them a voice.
