Awakenings was a performance conceived, written and performed by Zsuzsanna Soboslay (with performer Ben Howes). It drew inspiration from a German play written in the 1890?s, Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind and looks at the possible changes an individual or an entire culture could take in times of vulnerability and desire. It brought in the current issues in Australia of the possibility of moving towards a republic.
