This imaginative and poignant series of vignettes created and performed by Iceland’s famed master puppeteer Bernd Ogrodnik is a poetic—and often hilarious—exploration of the nature of our existence. This show might just change how you see the objects of your everyday life.

Metamorphosis brings a delightfully eclectic cast of characters to life, ranging from intricate, hand-carved marionettes and rod puppets to unusual characters created simply from silk scarves or Ogrodnik’s own hands and feet. Mostly presented in mesmerizing silence, three stories are set to an eclectic mix of musical accompaniment including Gabriel Faure’s “In Paradise” and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World,” as well as instrumental melodies composed and performed live by Ogrodnik.

Metamorphosis has toured the world extensively. This is its first time in Canada.
