Event

A Hunger Artist | Sinking Ship Productions
Sinking Ship's A HUNGER ARTIST returns to the Connelly Theater for seven performances only after highly acclaimed runs in New York, Edinburgh (Winner of the Lustrum Award for Excellence) and Baltimore.

"Are you still starving? When are you going to stop..?"

A man sits alone in a cage, starving himself for your entertainment. Sinking Ship's darkly comic, visually-striking adaptation of the Franz Kafka short story uses physical theater, Victorian miniatures, puppetry, and a set of simple props to support a powerhouse solo performance.

Once cheered by thousands, the Hunger Artist is now forgotten by everyone except his one-time manager. What begins as a simple nostalgic story transforms into a startlingly inventive trip into the nature of memory, art, performance, and spectatorship, as told by the only person who remembers an artist whose act was simply... to hunger.

Critics Pick! "Full of jokes and sudden sympathy... The artist starves, but we leave sated." Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

"Directed by Joshua William Gelb from an elegant script by Josh Luxenberg, this visually arresting 'Hunger Artist' leads with enchantment... [Jonathan Levin] holds the audience in the palm of his hand." The New York Times

"A bravura display of theatrical skill... the best, most complete work I've seen this year. If I had a sixth star, it would get one." Fringe Guru (Edinburgh)
