    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Metamorphosis. Kafka’s terrifying but bizarrely comic story bursts onto the stage in this theatrically explosive new version. Fantastic and horrific, surprisingly funny and poignant, the ordinary, unremarkable life of the Samsa family turns upside down when their son, Gregor, emerges one morning to find himself inexplicably transformed into a gigantic bug. Combining breathtaking physicality and daring aerial action, the recently transformed Gregor lithely negotiates a gravity-defying split level set in this hugely acclaimed production directed and adapted by Gisli Örn Gardarsson and David Farr. With evocative original music composed by world-renowned musician and lyricist Nick Cave and long-time collaborator Warren Ellis from The Bad Seeds, the music emphasizes Kafka’s dream-like vision and turns it into an electrifying reality.
