The story from Franz Kafka’s novella “The Metamorphosis” tells of the transformation of the traveling salesman Gregor Samsa into a huge insect. The main theme that the show’s creative team focuses on is lying and its presence in society today. How does a person transform from childhood to adulthood – through society, from his workplace, through his actions? How do friendships and love relationships affect him? How do lies shift values ​​in a person and change their existence? These are only some of the questions whose answers are sought in the author’s performance of Veselka Kuncheva – “THE METAMORPHOSIS”
