Based on one of the great texts of Western civilization, Ovid’s Metamorphoses, visual magician and director Mary Zimmerman created her own contemporary version of this classic text. Centered around a pool of water, Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses examines the myths that define us. She shows how acts of creation and destruction, invention and dissolution, memory and forgetting, love and loss, all center around the transmutation of one physical, emotional, or spiritual state into another, and how the notion of metamorphosis is central to the formation of order from chaos. With contemporary language, humor, and startling visual originality, Zimmermann’s Metamorphoses gives us a refreshing, deeper theatrical insight into what is to be truly human.
