"The Reawakening" was written in a minimalist fashion in order to depict the simple and stark rebirth of planet Earth. The instrumentation is limited, making this the perfect show choice for smaller ensembles. Written to depict some type of world catastrophe (Zombies, EMP attack, end of the world, etc.). The Reawakening evokes a stark beginning and progresses to a joyous ending. The first movement is simple and pure, symbolizing the calmness that may exist after the initial event. The second movement brings up the struggle that will occur with rebuilding and the third movement gives way to jubilant sounds signifying the success of the "reawakening" of the planet. Floor design and costumes could be dark and industrial in appearance. Props could include chain link fencing and graffiti laden walls. Be creative and take part in "The Reawakening".
