October 11 - October 27, 2019
Inferno Theatre presents Giulio Cesare Perrone’s adaptation of Ovid’s masterpiece Metamorphoses, a fantastic retelling of humans, animals, plants, and mythical creatures on an epic quest to save the ecosystem (and ultimately themselves) from extinction. Using 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 production features design elements that incorporate natural, sustainable, and recycled materials.
Metamorphoses opens Friday, October 11 at Berkeley's Studio Azul, and runs Fridays to Sundays through October 27.
While the majority of performances take place at the Studio Azul, there are two special performances at The David Brower Center in Berkeley, in conjunction with the exhibition National Geographic's Photo Ark by Joel Sartore which focuses on species conservation. The David Brower Center provides a home for the environmental movement by advocating for the beauty, diversity and ecological integrity of Earth. It is Inferno Theatre's intention that by integrating theater with environmental issues and promoting information and discussion through theatrical work, the company and its East Bay community can connect to a larger movement in the United States to discuss and environmental issues with creativity, empathy, and urgency.
