A Hunger Artist

3 June @ 6:00 pm - 5 June @ 7:30 pm

Following their award-winning production of Metamorphosis (London, New York, Sky TV), director-choreographer Arthur Pita reunites with dance virtuoso Edward Watson and composer-musician extraordinaire Frank Moon, this time welcoming the renowned rebel chanteuse Meow Meow.

Together, they delve into Kafka’s final and seminal work with a new adaptation of ‘A Hunger Artist,’ seamlessly intertwining dance, song, and intrigue into an enthralling, immersive spectacle.

Confined within a locked, straw-lined cage, Watson immerses himself in the role of the ‘Hunger Artist,’ enduring fasts lasting up to forty days. The bewitching Meow Meow takes command of the stage as the audacious ‘Impresario,’ drawing crowds to witness this ‘art’, amidst unfolding complexities. Meanwhile, Frank Moon’s eclectic score surrounds the audience, pulling them deeper into the experience with every breath.

These visionary artists inject new life into Kafka’s haunting and obscure narrative, exploring sacrifice, obsession, and the relentless pursuit of artistry.
