Interactive theatre goes edible
The Hunger, an immersive performance installation devised by architect Margaret Krawecka, and with Mal Nowacka (The Chimera Project), Ulysses Castellanos and Richard Windeyer (bluemouth inc.) The Hunger tells the original fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel. Audience members walk through a 500 sq ft installation made of vacuum-sealed bread, and are lead by performers through a theatrical fusion of sound, smells and video.
The Hunger is being described as, “Like the Blair Witch Project…but with gingerbread” and the installation (part of which is edible) is comprised of 250 loaves of white bread.
Sounds fabulous to us!
The Hunger explores the themes of modern escapism and consumption through this age-old folk story and runs May 24-27 at Scotiabank Studio Theatre.
