"In one night, everything has changed."
The ordinary, unremarkable life of the Samsa family is suddenly turned upside down when their son, Gregor, awakes one morning to find himself inexplicably transformed into a giant insect. This theatrically spellbinding production from Iceland combines remarkable physicality and daring aerial action as the recently transformed Gregor negotiates a gravity-defying set in a daring re-telling of this haunting story.
