Franz Kafka’s terrifying but bizarrely comic story Metamorphosis bursts onto the stage in a theatrically explosive new version by renowned British playwright and director David Farr (Associate Director of Royal Shakespeare Company) and actor/director Gisli Örn Gardarsson, of the award-winning Icelandic theatre company Vesturport. This hugely acclaimed production combines breathtaking physicality and daring aerial action.
With evocative original music composed by world-renowned musician and lyricist Nick Cave and long time collaborator Warren Ellis from The Bad Seeds, the music emphasize Kafka’s dream-like vision and turn it into an electrifying reality.
Metamorphosis was created and premiered in 2006 at the prestigious Lyric Hammersmith in London. It received rave reviews and has been revived twice since, due to popular demand, in 2008 and again in 2013.
The cast includes Björn Thors as Gregor, Unnur Ösp Stefánsdóttir as Greta, Tom Mannion as Herman, Edda Arnljótsdóttir as Lucy, and Víkingur Kristajánsson as Herr Stiethl/Herr Fischer.
