CVIVarts – Franz Kafka’s A Hunger Artist

7th March - 8:00 pm

From his first to his fortieth day.

There was a time when people would gather day after day, night after night, to watch a man starve. The Hunger Artist drew crowds from all around. Whatever the light, at any hour, he was quite happy at the prospect of spending a sleepless night with such watchers.

But fashions change and fame fades fast as audiences find new forms of entertainment. No longer a main attraction, the Hunger Artist finds himself side-lined in a circus, drowned out by the roar of the animals and all but forgotten by the paying punters.

As the crowds thin, the Hunger Artist is still driven to perform. For art. For spectacle. For curiosity and control.

How far will he go to prove himself and to pursue his obsession?

This absurdist adaptation of Franz Kafka’s ‘A Hunger Artist’ takes a man, a cage and a clock and attempts to unpick the simple topics of the nature of art and the human condition…

Directed by Carrieanne Vivianette with choreography by Phil Sanger and original sound compositions by Duncan Evans.

CVIVarts is a new Yorkshire based company creating bold and exciting performance work.

75mins no interval.
