RAVEN

by still hungry

From 2019 CHAMÄLEON Productions will produce the contemporary circus piece RAVEN by the Berlin artist collective still hungry. The collective consists of the three artists Anke van Engelshoven, Lena Ries and Romy Seibt, who came together after many years of friendship to create innovative circus pieces together. Their works are fresh, feminist, strong, and do not shy away from exploring personal themes that are not easily found in circus.

In RAVEN, the artists explore the complex theme of motherhood. Based on their own experiences as artists and mothers, the performers intelligently and strikingly shed light on the stigma of the German term "Rabenmutter" (raven mother). With disarming directness, the performers present a moving performance on stage, challenging the status quo and inviting us to question and reconsider preconceived notions and sexist clichés.

In the first creation period of RAVEN, still hungry worked with the renowned director and performance artist Bryony Kimmings, who is known for her emotionally intelligent, provocative and progressive style.
