Mary Zimmerman’s astonishing play, METAMORPHOSES, based on the myths of Ovid, envelops the Art Factory stage with breathtaking imagery and surrealistic storytelling. Set in and around a giant pool of water, a group of storytellers weave in and out of stories and characters in one of the most unique and thrilling theatrical experiences created for the stage. As the storytellers wade through the onstage pool, these ancient stories of poignance, humor and tragedy are brought to life through the use of movement, puppetry, music, and many more imaginative theatrical techniques. Audiences are taken on an epic journey as METAMORPHOSES examines the inevitability of change and the human ability to adapt to change with the juxtaposition of ancient and contemporary images and language.
METAMORPHOSES features an incredible Houston-local cast including Colton Berry as Midas and others, Luke Hamilton as Vertumnus and others, Nonie Hilliard as Alcyone and others, Sam Lank as Eurydice and others, Ian Lewis as Orpheus and others, Allan McFarlane as Zeus and others, Christine Mompoint as Aphrodite and others, Julia Noble as Myrrha and others, and Shonee Singer as Nursemaid and others. METAMORPHOSES is co-directed by Art Factory’s Founding Artistic and Executive Directors, Colton Berry and Luke Hamilton, Berry also serves as Production Designer, with Jane Volke as a Design Associate and Stage Management by Rachel Epstein.
