I Am Hungry
"Staring at the TV, I am changing the channels. I know I need something. All the time. I swallow everything that catches my fancy. Sometimes, I take more than I need at the moment. Sometimes I also get confused, and even though deep inside I want one thing, I stuff myself with another, and it turns out to be air. I displace my inner hunger with matter. I live in a world of objects, where the one who consumes, survives. This is why I will eat until I can."
"I Am Hungry"
A three-part, one and a quarter hour long theatre performance loosely based on three plays revolving around the themes of hunger and food. Hunger is the driving force behind most of the protagonists' motives, set in different contexts. "I am hungry" uses the means of sketch, drama and parody, dialogue with the audience, and live video projections. Premiered in October 2010 at New Bulgarian University Theatre Sofia. Performed at Sfumato Theater, Sofia, Theatre Nights Sofia 2013, Atelier Plastelin, Sofia.
