Danae welcomes back to Milan, after a few years’ absence, the theatre collective Città di Ebla, based in Forlì and directed by Claudio Angelini, who is also artistic director for the Ipercorpo festival. La Metamorfosi is inspired by Kafka’s famous tale The Metamorphosis. Far from a mere representation, and thanks to Alessandro Bedosti’s outstanding physical performance, it is a greatly evocative play: a man searches for the animal within himself as to escape from everyday life, inside a bathroom where he turns his vital dimension into pure intensity. In this work, set in an exceptionally elegant scene, Gregor Samsa’s sorrow and boredom of life acquire a particular poignancy.
