Metamorphosis explores the relationship between the created and creators. It begins with a look at the creation story and moves via personal tragedy to various historical attempts to create life. Humanity worries that the rise of robots will result in extinction, but how about robots? What do they worry about?
A shortened version of Metamorphosis was performed as the supporting act for Rhian Edwards at the Art House, Southampton in December 2014.
The first full length show took place as part of the Bournemouth Emerging Arts Fringe on Friday 23rd of October 2015. http://www.b-e-a-f.co.uk/event/metamorphosis/
