METAMORPHOSIS

By Theatrical Niche

 

Puppet by Maia Kirkman-Richards

               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 toured this monstrosity in Spring 2017, using signature touches of physical theatre and grotesque ensemble puppetry.
