A HUNGER ARTIST

A HUNGER ARTIST

A HUNGER ARTIST

Adapted from the story by Franz Kafka
By Sinking Ship Productions

“Are you still starving? When are you going to stop…?”

What begins as a nostalgic celebration of a lost art form—and its most famous practitioner—becomes a darkly funny trip into the very question of what it means to suffer, and what it means when suffering becomes a public spectacle. In this inventive adaptation of Kafka’s tragicomic story, A Hunger Artist, actor, puppeteer and Sinking Ship co-artistic director Jonathan Levin gives a playful and startling performance as the only person who remembers an artist whose act was simply… to hunger.

“Directed by Joshua William Gelb from an elegant script by Josh Luxenberg, this visually arresting ‘Hunger Artist’ leads with enchantment… [Levin] holds the audience in the palm of his hand.” —Laura Collins-Hughes, The New York Times

★★★★ Critics Pick! “Surprisingly lovable… full of jokes and sudden sympathy… The artist starves, but we leave sated.” —Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

“Spellbinding… On the stage, A Hunger Artist has an impact equal to its power on the page. It’s almost as if Kafka himself willed it into being.” —David Finkle, Huffington Post
