As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from a night of uneasy dreams he found himself transformed into a gigantic insect... Big Telly brought together the stunning music and dance team that created its Autumn 1995 production of Cuchulainn to produce this Irish premiere of Berkoff's amazing production. Berkoff's play is based on Franz Kafka's story Metamorphosis about a travelling salesman who finds that overnight he has become transformed into a giant insect.
Did you hold your breath for this underwater fantasy - as Big Telly went overboard with the fresh and bubbly adaptation of Charles Kingsley's much-loved story The Water Babies. Something very fishy happened to little Tom when the sooty sweep lost his way in the blackest of chimneys and ended up in the whitest of rooms where a brief encounter with pretty Miss Ellie left him completely out of his depth.
TO HELL WITH FAUST was a bold and inventive new piece of performance which was inspired by the celebrated tale of a man who sold his soul to the devil. In the tradition of Big Telly's acclaimed productions of Metamorphosis and Cuchulainn, the company assembled a creative team of researchers, a writer/director, composer, choreographer, theatre designer and five performers to explore the story from as many creative angles as possible.
