About The Performance
Columbia University School of the Arts present A Hunger Artist, a directing thesis production by current student Yibin Wang.
A Hunger Artist is a radical reimagining of Kafka’s seminal short story about an artist who fasts in a cage. Set in an online streaming world, this production examines the human condition and noble ways of interactions in the current time through the hunger artist’s questions of “what does it mean for him to gain attention from people” and “what are his real values that he can insist on” in that world.
