One of the great classics of the twentieth century literature that focuses on the existential conflict that resides in humans outside the permitted eras and places.

Al Teatro a l'Avogaria Venice scene is 'The Metamorphosis' of the company Teatro Alkaline directed by Stefano Pagin with David Ciani and Bojana Lazarevic.

The show offers the dramatic adaptation for one actor and actress of 1915 eponymous short story by Franz Kafka. He recounted how modest "Salesman" Gregor Samsa, used a 'textile company, wakes up one morning turned into an insect. The story, which is stunning for a middle-class family in the face of an incomprehensible occurrence, touches the most intimate essence of contemporary man's existential conflict.

In this theatrical adaptation it has wanted to focus a magnifying glass on the relationship between brother and sister: Gregor / Grete. Favoring a reading, so to speak, biological and social, which shows that the Gregor forfeiture allows the emancipation of the younger sister, only to be reproductive of the whole family, so capable of replication wholesomely at the expense of his brother, sterile and embarrassing particle socio-economic consortium. The show holds a plot in the form of childish game, more or less consciously hatched by her sister against brother. All the more so today, in an 'era of overpopulation, strong migrations, vecchiaie increasingly protracted, the fight for space is, every day, before our eyes, and also read through this way adapted to our times the Kafka text , albeit from his surreal corner, still he speaks to us.
