ABOUT THE SHOW!

What poetry offers to literature, puppetry can bring to the theatre. Metamorphosis is a collection of original short stories told not with words but with the metaphorical grace of puppetry.The vignettes range from the trivial to the metaphysical and emphasize the imagery made possible through the surrealistic quality inherent in puppetry.

The cast consists of intricate marionettes and rod puppets carved of wood, as well as unusual characters created simply with silk scarves and the hands and feet of the puppeteer. Bernd Ogrodnik leaves his audience with images that occupy them long after leaving the theatre, strengthening them in dealing with the ‘theatre of daily life‘.
