About the Perfomance:
“God of Hunger” is our first general production and concerns one of today’s gravest issues – poverty.
Poverty as a provoker of violence and total despair.
Poverty as an inflictor of shame and a cause of the loss of honor.
Poverty, taking the form of a terrible and merciless god conceived by the social elite who implements his power to rule the lower classes.
The performance is based on documentary materials, which through combining musical and dramaturgical elements, presents the research done by nine actors and two directors.
The ancient Greek myth of Prince Erysichthon also served as inspiration for the play. The story goes that Prince Erysichthon was cursed with everlasting hunger as punishment for his cutting down of an oak tree in the Greek god Demeter’s city. Erysichthon sold every last one of his belongings, as well as his daughter, in an attempt to alleviate his untiring hunger. Finally, driven to madness from his starvation, he devours himself.
