Spring Awakening

Almeida Theatre – 2021

The brief: Spring Awakening is a musical that tells the story of a group of 19th century teenagers. Silenced and controlled by a censorious society, Melchior, Wendla and Moritz discover a world of feeling and freedom outside the classroom, with devastating consequences.

Director Rupert Goold was keen to show the whole company of young actors, so we decided to go with a very editorial approach for the artwork. We worked with fashion photographer Alessio Bolzoni to create striking group shots and a series of individual portraits of the lead characters being constrained by their peers.
