In “Spring Break” PLAN MEE relocates Igor Stravinsky’s masterpiece “Le Sacre du Printemps” to today’s young generation. Focusing on new behaviour patterns, the phenomenon “Spring break” is being explored.

During Spring Break, students all across America gather at party venues to celebrate extensively. There, large groups of young people meet up to forget about the stressful university life by drinking huge amounts of alcohol accompanied by all sorts of drugs. Alongside the consequences of alcohol and drug abuse, it’s not unusual that there will also be public display of nudity and promiscuity. Thus, the sacred dance is getting a new twist: It’s not a virgin that gets sacrificed anymore, but more than one virginity is falling by the wayside.

In the villages, that up to 300.000 young people will make a pilgrimage to, they leave huge mountains of rubbish and a trail of destruction behind. Like this, spring itself falls prey and has to fight – represented by Stravinsky’s music – for its right in a new world, where it can only find its place through transformation.

PLAN MEE is looking for pictures, movement patterns and internal motors that are presentable for this present generation.
