October 19 – November 23
Adapted by Giulio Cesare Perrone from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
Inferno Theatre is proud to present the world premiere of Metamorphoses. Adapted by Inferno Theatre’s Producing Artistic Director, Giulio Cesare Perrone, from Ovid’s masterpiece, Metamorphoses uses movement, multimedia, music, and both ancient and modern texts as it explores the relationship between Ovid’s work, Shamanism, Climate Change, and the Human Genome Project. The design elements incorporate natural, sustainable and recycled materials. The highly trained physical ensemble will portray ancient and post-modern gods as nymphs and satyrs who once inhabited the woods, as they transform and are transformed by both heroes and mortal men and women. This provocative work will stir debate and action as the audience comes to understand nature itself on an emotional level, bridging evolutionary changes and mutations in the ecology of our planet.
Composer and Sound Designer Bruno Louchouarn.
Lighting Design by Michael Palumbo. Additional Music and Movement generated by the Ensemble: Simone Bloch, Rudradeep Chakrabarti, Valentina Emeri, Freddy Izaguirre-Merlos, Dilan MacHardy, Michael Needham, Nkechi, Sabrina Wenske.
