A HUNGER ARTIST
"A Hunger Artist" is an experimental dance theater production that follows the journey of a fasting artist who lives for, but simultaneously resents his audience. A combination of avant garde, Vaudeville slapstick, jazz and contemporary dance the piece relates the hyper self-critical journey of the young, striving artist. Inspired by Franz Kafka's A Hunger Artist, composer and director Simona Minns takes us on a rollercoaster of grotesque images versus pure emotion.
