RAVEN by Still hungry

(deutsche Version s.u.)

STILL HUNGRY is a contemporary circus collective from Berlin. We are three mothers Romy, Anke and Lena who united after years of friendship to create a piece far from the classical circus.

Our show "RAVEN“ explores the meaning of „Rabenmütter“, a German term, which has been synonymous with bad motherhood for centuries. Consciously using this term for reinterpretation, we make displeasure visible and reveal the uncomfortable dark sides of our own motherhood to encourage people to break with conventions and talk about contradictions.

With the amazing support of director and performance artist Bryony Kimmings (www.bryonykimmings.com) we were able to put this topic on a circus stage!

After being selected for a residency by Chamäleon Productions in Berlin (funded by the Berlin Senate department for culture and Europe) and a residency in Schloß Bröllin we are now entering phase two of our creation and production process. Our premiere at the Berlin Circus Festival is only 2 months away (https://www.berlin-circus-festival.de) and we need your help to create the best version possible.

The funds earned from this campaign will go towards the following:

  • Transportation, accomodation and fees of our creative team
  • Stage equipment (a travel sofa)
  • Costumes
  • Filming
  • portable mini beamer

STILL HUNGRY ist ein zeitgenössisches Circuskollektiv aus Berlin. Die drei Mütter Romy, Anke und Lena haben sich nach langjähriger Freundschaft vereint um ein Stück fernab des klassischen Circus zu kreieren.

"RAVEN" erforscht die Bedeutung der "Rabenmutter". Das Stück interpretiert diesen Begriff neu und macht dabei die unbequemen Schattenseiten der eigenen Mutterschaft sichtbar um Menschen zu ermutigen mit Konventionen zu brechen und über Widersprüche zu reden.

Mit der großartigen Unterstützung der Regisseurin und Performancekünstlerin Bryony Kimmings (www.bryonykimmings.com) können wir dieses Thema auf eine Zirkusbühne bringen!

Nachdem wir von Chamäleon Productions (gefördert vom Berliner Senat für Kultur und Europe) für eine Residenz ausgewählt wurden, beginnen wir nun die zweite Phase unseres Kreations- und Produktionsprozesses. Unsere Premiere beim Berlin Circus Festival ist nur 2 Monate entfernt https://www.berlin-circus-festival.de und wir brauchen eure Hilfe um die bestmögliche Version zu erstellen.

Die Einnahmen aus dieser Kampagne werden in folgende Dinge investiert:

  • Bühnenausstattung (ein Reisesofa)
  • Reisekosten, Unterbringung und Vergütung unseres Kreativteams
  • Kostüme
  • Videoaufnahme  
  • tragbarer Mini-Beamer
