Ovid’s “Metamorphoses” are the source of many well‐known stories, from Shakespeare, Goethe, and Kafka to Lynch and Cronenberg. The anarchic power of metamorphosis is at home in storytelling and can even leave death behind. Whoever tells stories, is right; whoever tells stories, is alive. Antú Romero Nunes stages the classic about gods and humans, about heroes, monsters, nymphs, and muses in an everyday disguise. It’s a cross‐genre round dance and a song that never stops playing. This play with a large cast and band will be performed in German with English surtitles at the Schauspielhaus Basel.
Tickets are CHF 30–50.
