"RAVEN“ explores the meaning of „Rabenmütter“,
a German term, which has been synonymous with bad motherhood for centuries. Consciously using this term for reinterpretation, STILL HUNGRY makes displeasure visible and reveals the uncomfortable dark sides of their own motherhood to encourage people to break with conventions and talk about contradictions.
Climbing out of their comfortable nest they will adventurously go on unconventional flights - with or without regrets, but loud and visible!
STILL HUNGRY is a contemporary circus collective from Berlin. The three mothers Romy, Anke and Lena have united after years of friendship to create a piece far from the classical circus. Their work is fresh, feminist and powerful. The experience for the audience is moving, honest but also very amusing: They use strong images, a versatile language of movement and never forget their humor.
For the creation of RAVEN they work with the performance artist and director Bryony Kimmings, who is known for her emotionally intelligent, provocative and refreshing style.
Supported by the residency program of Chamäleon Productions, funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
Producer: Anke Politz
"RAVEN" by still hungry is a moving, honest but also very amusing show about modern motherhood.
"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."
"An excellent hour of circus, physical theatre, and dance digging into what the performers gave up, and what they refuse to let go of."
"contemporary feminist circus... strong and rousing"
"Heroes. Rock 'n' Roll goddesses."
