Inspired by the writing of Franz Kafka, author of The Trial and Metamorphosis, four dark and comic tales exploring what it means to be human. Two actors play eight unforgettable characters in this powerful re-imagining of Kafka’s original masterpieces.
Tale 1 : An Interview for the Academy. Meet Rotpeter , half-ape, half-man – and so much more than both – as he is interviewed to join the mysterious Academy.
Tale 2 : Men and their Atrocities. Hear the confession of a timid Servant, made to witness things she will never be allowed to forget.
Tale 3 : The Work. He dreams of finishing his back-breaking work. She dreams of being admired by millions. Can both their dreams ever come true?
Tale 4 : Selling the Hunger Artist.The Hunger Artist has come to the end of his illustrious career. What next for a man who starves himself for public entertainment?
