Everyone writes their own distinctive story. You can be a racing driver on the track, a fighter in the ring, a dancer on the stage, a figure skater in the stadium, a rugby player on the field, or a boulderer on the wall. Yet, there is this shared feeling deeply rooted in all of us: the hunger for more.
The inner drive to always step out of the comfort zone, no matter the playing field. Staying hungry is the answer to everything. Not only to us, but to the five people we met whilst shooting our ‘Stay Hungry’ Film in Copenhagen as well.
Waldean Nelson, a dancer in the Gothenburg Opera Dance Company, took a big risk while auditioning and proved to himself that staying hungry is a sacrifice sometimes, but one that is worth the outcome. Ever since he received the phone call and got accepted to the company he is certain of one thing: “I hold that as a proof of what you can gain from taking a risk of staying hungry“. To him, art has the power to change the world “…it touches people’s hearts“ and that’s what feeds him to keep pushing and pursuing his passion, by choosing to say yes every day. And mistakes? He sees the beauty in them: “I’m in a place where I'm just trying to be comfortable with the uncomfortable.“
