Prior to the beginning of our 5th year, Unit 14’s presentation was based on Metamorphosis starting with quoting Franz Kafka; “As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into an enormous insect.”
– Franz Kafka – The Metamorphosis (1915)
and here is some further reference of Arthur Pita’s award-winning dance-theatre adaptation of Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis in Joyce Theatre New York, with Royal Ballet Principal Edward Watson as Gregor Samsa.
The Metamorphosis tells the story of salesman Gregor Samsa who wakes up one morning as an insect, and is brought to life through innovative and distinctive choreography and direction from Arthur Pita. The piece includes an intense sound-world score by composer Frank Moon.
