Metamorphosis by Talia Pura
Metamorphosis follows the life cycle of the butterfly. Each character represents one of the life stages.
The Egg is a little girl in her self-made bomb shelter during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.
The Caterpillar is always hungry: a Dominatrix, always hungry for another submissive.
The Chrysalis contains an aging movie star, deciding whether to withdraw from the world.
The Butterfly, of course, can fly, represented by aerial dance; climbing, twisting, posing, falling and dancing, on silks hung above the stage floor. The character has left behind all former selves, enjoying the freedom of her new state of being.
