Hunger

 

hungerEn forestilling om afhængigheden i os alle
Uanset hvem vi er, kender vi til at hungre og længes næsten sygeligt efter noget. Hungeren efter mad, varme, penge, håb, nærhed, kærlighed. Selvom det er de færreste mennesker i den vestlige verden, der oplever den rene hunger, som bunder i reel mangel på mad, så kender vi til gengæld trangen til stimulanser som stoffer, alkohol, sukker, sex, forbrug, facebook – og ikke mindst til at begrave sig i arbejde. Hungeren er et livsvilkår, en rå urdrift, som vi ikke kan løbe fra.

Med sin soloforestilling, konfronterer skuespiller og performer Lene Kreilgaard os med et af vores samfunds tabuer og vores indre sultne dæmoner i en collage af kropslige og sproglige billeder.

Forestillingen havde premiere i Dansehallerne 7. Januar 2016 og turnerer i 2018/19.

” Thank you for an lovely experience! I loved that the narrative of the piece was clear and authentic, that the inner turmoil was so clearly expressed in the choreography, and the sound design was a true treat.” (Blacklistet Copenhagen, Facebook).
”Årets første premiere i går mindede mig om, at det ikke kun er blandt de helt unge, vi kan finde nye talenter. Lene Kreilgaard debuterede i går som solodanser med stor intensitet og nerve.” (Karen Toftegaard, Facebook).

A performance about the addiction in all of us

Hunger is a solo-performance about craving and addiction. No matter who or what we are, hunger and yearning obsessively for something is not unfamiliar to us. Hunger for food, warmth, money, intimacy, love. Even though not many people in the western world expiriences true hunger based on lack of food, we know all about craving different stimuli such as drugs, alcohol, sugar, sex, shopping, social media – and not least of all work can become an addiction.Hunger is a condition of human life, a raw basic instinct that we cannot escape. In the performance Hunger we are confronted with our own hungry demons and one of the taboos of our society in a collage of physical images, lyrical text and sound/music.
