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.

Awards and Accolades:

WINNER of The Scotsman Fringe First Award 2019

Shortlisted for the Total Theatre Award for Circus 2019

WINNER of the ThreeWeeks Edinburgh Editors' Award 2019

In the press:

"beautiful and spectacular... Among many other glorious qualities, Raven is particularly striking for the pitch-perfect ease with which it combines language and movement, as if the words acted as cues leading to soaring passages of movement that always add hugely to the meaning of the piece."
The Scotsman

"An excellent hour of circus, physical theatre, and dance digging into what the performers gave up, and what they refuse to let go of."
Broadway Baby

"contemporary feminist circus... strong and rousing"
EdFest Mag

"Heroes. Rock 'n' Roll goddesses."
The Circus Diaries

"When it all comes together it’s incredibly powerful, and I was wholly unprepared for the effect it would have on me."
ThreeWeeks Edinburgh

"Raven is impressive, feminist and creative and undoubtedly not one to miss out on"
