Event Description

he Joyce season opens spectacularly with choreographer/director Arthur Pita’s brilliant dance theater reinterpretation of the Kafka novella, for which he won the 2012 UK National Dance Award for Best Modern Choreography. At the core of this extraordinary production, which has a cast specially brought together by Mr. Pita, is Royal Ballet Principal Edward Watson (in his Olivier Award winning role as Gregor Samsa), who, with remarkable technical and emotional skill, captures his character’s transformation into a gigantic insect. “Watson’s freakish performance is a physical tour de force, but what elevates his reading of Samsa is, paradoxically, its humanity,” proclaims The Guardian. A score created and performed live by Frank Moon and stark, white designs by Simon Daw create a claustrophobic atmosphere, while the horror of Gregor’s physical alteration is graphically evoked by Edward Watson’s searing performance.

The Metamorphosis was originally produced by London’s Royal Ballet for the Linbury Studio Theatre at the Royal Opera House. The Joyce is pleased to bring this contemporary masterpiece to New York in association with The Royal Ballet.
