The Hunger Artist

Company: Human Group

There are no limits to my ability to fast! In this explosive performance, Franz Kafka’s strangest character comes to life and invites the audience to come and share his dark cage. Nick Fesette, in a truly naked performance, plunges headfirst into the soul of the hunger artist and ecstatically emerges drenched in theatrical placenta. Using song, dance, and circus tricks, the Human Group explores starvation, the human body, and what it means to be a performing animal.
