METAMORPHOSIS by Steven Berkoff
A Stage adaptation of Franz Kafka's renowned novella
Waking to find himself transformed into a dung beetle one morning, Gregor must now grossly consider his options. "Metamorphosis" casts its beady eyes over the norms of society, illustrating the alienation of one painfully normal individual with deft surrealism.
One of the most resonantly strange stories ever brought to stage, this highly acclaimed adaptation by Steven Berkoff plunges into the extremity of Kafka's dark humour, and reveals the tremulous human heart.
Theatrical Niche tour this monstrosity in Spring 2017, using signature touches of Physical Theatre and grotesque ensemble Puppetry.
Alice Sillett heads up this awe-inspiring production, incorporating her Puppetry expertise to create jaw-dropping visuals. "Metamorphosis" will be the eleventh tour for Theatrical Niche, and marks the fourth production directed by Sillett - having garnered outstanding reviews for The Good Person of Szechwan, Lysistrata and Blood Wedding.
It is our pleasure to again offer both free and bespoke workshops to accompany the piece, given that it is multidisciplinary and on the German syllabus. Question and answers sessions are also provided upon request, and free Puppetry workshops can be claimed by group bookings of 8+ where applicable (and in agreement with venues).
