Written by Mary Zimmerman, Metamorphoses is based on Ovid's compendium of Greek myths and their relationship to bodies of water as a transformative element. Positioned in and around a large pool on the stage, the characters enact Zimmerman's adaptations of Ovid's tales, juxtaposing the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image.
While most productions feature a literal pool of real water as their primary scenic element, this production opted for a less messy approach, inspired by the works of Leandro Erlich.
