Have you ever felt outside?

Hunger was first published in 1890. It was to be Knut Hamsun's breakthrough novel and a work that at the same time meant something new in Norwegian literature. Hamsun portrays both the physical hunger and mental anguish of the unnamed protagonist in a way that makes the reader hard to forget about him. Hunger is a classic in modern poetry that has retained its fascination power even today.

"Hunger is a book that I come back to, over and over again. This relentless, merciless, perverse, comical and incoherent investigation of a solitary character's condition is so radical that it still takes my breath away." Siri Hustvedt

-Who has not known about the feeling of not belonging, or being overlooked by others. With Hunger, I want to show that it is human to feel outside, says Anders T. Andersen, who will direct and dramatize Knut Hamsun's classic for Riksteatret. He is behind a number of successful dramas of novels for theater such as Roy Jacobsen's The Invisible, Karl Ove Knausgårds In the Spring and Geir Gulliksens History of a Marriage. Andersen was also behind the filming of the Berlin Popes for NRK, releasing the feature film Birds based on Tarjei Vesa's novel in the fall of 2019 and these days has had great success with the Bowie musical Lazarus at the Norwegian Theater.

This time, too, he will create a theatrical set with a great deal of use of pictures, video and music - with among others actor Preben Hodneland and musician Tuva Syvertsen from the Valkyrien Allstars on stage.
