Macras

The first look ahead to the coming season after the summer break: On September 19, the new season opens with the world premiere of Constanza Macras/Dorky Park's latest production The Hunger.


Inspired by the historical events fictionalized in the novel "The Foreign Witness" by the Argentine writer Juan José Saer, The Hunger follows the experiences of European colonizers in the Rio de la Plata region of South America in the early 16th century.

An indigenous group attacks Spanish colonizers in the north of what is now Argentina. There is only one survivor, who integrates into the tribal society of the Colastiné. Much later, he is freed by the Spaniards and testifies, reflects and remembers his perceptions.

In "The Hunger", cannibalistic rituals are transferred to other forms of greed: from colonialism to the consumer frenzy of today's capitalism to the hyperproduction of an endless now in social networks, while one's own intimacy is devoured by the representational logic of the digital world.

Does reality only exist when someone observes it? With her large dance ensemble, Macras develops a pictorial treatise on excess.
