The Spring semester 2017 was brought to a dramatic end with two performances of Frank Wedekind’s thought-provoking 1891 play Frühlings Erwachen, as part of a senior seminar taught by Dr. Tin Wegel. Seventeen undergraduate students rehearsed this controversial play of young teenagers in distress over the course of the better half of the semester. Drawing also on volunteers from all levels of German, Dr. Wegel directed her students to not only convey the struggles, angst, and desires of Wedekind’s characters, but to also show students and the general public alike the artistic possibilities that come with taking German courses at Carolina.
