Experiments: Tarrare; The Hungriest Man

Federico Mostert

Series Director: Matt Nasser

A man is born extremely hungry in the world, the world is France so the world is terrible and thus an absurd tragicomedy on gluttony, sin, and attraction goes down between private homes and hospitals. You have a body, I have a hunger, what could go wrong?

Federico Mostert is a playwright/poet/dogsbody based in New York, working on weird things for the sake of sheer contempt in reality. Falling in love with fiction will do that. His previously produced plays include All Light On Earth Comes From Somewhere Else, in collaboration with the Wallpaper Company, and Whales, an audio drama in the 5th Wall Festival by Platform Production Company. He is a recent graduate from NYU Tisch’s Drama Program. Love you, Mom & Dad. And to the first creature that walked on land: this is all your fault.

Now accepting submissions! For the 21st season of La MaMa Experiments we will focus on theatre-makers working outside the American experience. Whether it’s plays about navigating the UK’s National Health Service or escaping an arranged marriage in India’s upperclass society, each month during our season we will present works in progress that explore universal themes set in frameworks foreign to most Americans.
