FAMISHED is a surreal and visceral exploration of human need.
Working with director Peta Lily, we have created a world where a Poor Theatre aesthetic resides in a dark, dreamlike world, delivered with poetic physicality. Slave Clowns are forced to animate the seminar presentation led by the voice of an evangelistic, automated Controller, purporting to present humanity with a solution to the world of need.
Playfully leaning on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, we explore human hunger on a rich spectrum. Alongside comedic depictions of hunger and inequality, the poetry and transcendence of Circus and original music evoke our needs of fulfilment, achievement and meaning.
Aimed at a 16+ audience, Famished is our most adult and experimental show to date.
With only a three-person cast, stunning music, lighting and design, and big circus skills, delivered with poignant vulnerability and plenty of humour, Famished is definitely a new string to our bow.
Famished is still in development. If you are interested in booking the show, or supporting it’s journey, we would love to hear from you.
