Are you interested in developing dance or theatre audiences? We have the opportunity to book Company of Wolves’ Seven Hungers as part of our Autumn/Winter season of Supported Touring. Often described as physical theatre, the show offers a great way to introduce theatre audiences to dance, and dance audiences to theatre.
From the cannibalistic funeral rites of our ancestors to our modern confusion about what, if anything, to put in our mouths, Seven Hungers is a devised physical theatre performance that digs into the history, biology and mythology of food, hunger, and desire.
Taking inspiration from the work of environmentalist Michael Pollan, chef Anthony Bourdain, food writer M.F.K. Fisher, and the renaissance-era drawings of human anatomy by Vesalius, Seven Hungers blends movement improvisation and live vocal scores in an attempt to understand our current near-total disconnection from the sources and production of the food we eat, and our dysfunctional relationship with the natural world and our own bodies.
Find out more on Tourbook and view videos of the company’s work on their website. Some promoters may be familiar with the work of Goat Theatre from Poland, which is very similar in style as the lead actor worked with them.
Seven Hungers is available from 29 October – 1 November 2014. Get in touch with our Programmer Lindsay by Mon 7 Jul if you are interested.
