Based on the Myths of Ovid
Written and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman

Mary Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses is a contemporary retelling of Ovid’s classic tales. Each story draws us into a different corner of human emotion, from joy to despair, to horror and disgust, consistently mixing the profound with the silly. The stories are connected by the theme of unstoppable change, and set in and around a large body of water.
Dacha’s site-specific production brought Metamorphoses to the shores of Lake Washington. We explored these myths through a devised, movement-driven process, finding personal connections and developing unique physical languages for each story.
