Metamorphoses

By the Red Room and based on the tales of Ovid Det Kongelige Teater

Description

The return of Elisa Kragerup and the Red Room’s imaginative take on Ovid’s mythical narratives on transformations.

A woman is transformed into a bear, a man becomes a stag, and humans become trees, rivers and rocks. In Ovid’s Metamorphoses the impossible comes to pass. Gods and goddesses, centaurs and nymphs, monsters or legendary creatures – no one is spared when Cupid’s piercing arrow unleashes the ungovernable forces of nature, making us powerless against forbidden lusts: a daughter falls in love with her father, a sister with her brother, Narcissus with himself. But revenge and brutality also find their way onto the boards in this grotesquely humorous depiction.
