Do you know what happens to female acrobats when they hit middle age? Neither do still hungry, but they’re going to use every trick they have to try and figure it out.
Show Pony is the new autobiographical piece by Berlin-based company still hungry, in collaboration with groundbreaking performance artist Bryony Kimmings.
Part circus show, part training session, part freeform analysis, Show Pony is an open hearted look at a life onstage and the gut wrenching moment when that stage no longer wants you. Past, present and imagined futures intersect in a myriad of moments as the three women try to decide about how to keep going, or even if they should.
Packed full of love, laughter and lunacy Show Pony is another joyful scream into the face of the patriarchy by still hungry that challenges us to question our societal prejudices towards age and femininity, onstage and off.
Show Pony is shown as a world premiere at Chamäleon Berlin.
