Franz Kafka's novella of the absurd and unexpected makes a fascinating subject for Arthur Pita's first commission for ROH2. Featuring Royal Ballet Principal Edward Watson in the central role of Gregor Samsa, a travelling salesman who awakes one morning to find himself transformed into a giant insect. Starkly designed by Simon Daw, the Linbury auditorium will be transformed, in traverse, to provide an intimate, surreal Kafka-esque experience. Gregor Samsa's unspeakable nightmare is brought to life by innovative composer Frank Moon - who will play live, an international cast of uniquely individual performers, and Pita's distinctive theatrical style.
