A nightmare inspired by Kafka’s Metamorphosis
META, final instalment of the 2014 Helium season looks at Kafka’s short story Metamorphosis – a story about a man who wakes up one morning to discover he has turned into a repulsive insect. In a world where the ‘other’ is shunned, this new production reimagines the given circumstances of Kafka’s world, drawing on his central characters but placing them in a contemporary nightmare where the tragic fate of the ‘other’ demands attention.
