Win a Surrey Arts and Dining Date Night

Comments 53 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Surrey Civic Theatres presents the enchanting puppet show for adults, Metamorphosis, at Centre Stage at Surrey City Hall on March 13th. An imaginative and poignant series of vignettes that range from the trivial to the metaphysical, the multi-faceted work created and performed by Iceland’s famed master puppeteer Bernd Ogrodnik is a poetic — and often hilarious — exploration of the nature of our existence, inviting audience members to change how they perceive the objects of their everyday lives.

Surrey Civic Theatres Presents Metamorphosis

Where: Centre Stage at Surrey City Hall (13450 104 Ave, Surrey)
When: March 13, 2019 at 7:30pm
Tickets: From $25, available online now or by calling (604) 501-5566. Audience advisory:  One of the vignettes contains some mature content. This performance is intended for audience members ages 16+. 

Originally commissioned in 2006 by the National Theatre of Iceland for adult audiences, the 90-minute presentation of Metamorphosis has toured the world extensively and comes to Canada for the first time in 2019. Featuring original stories ranging in length from just a few minutes to nearly 20 minutes, the mixed program triggers complex emotions, stirring the hearts and souls of audiences and encouraging new perspectives. Mostly presented in mesmerizing silence, three stories—“A Boy and a Horse,” “The Last Dance,” and “Mother Earth” — are set to an eclectic mix of musical accompaniment featuring Gabriel Faure’s “In Paradisum” and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World,” as well as instrumental melodies composed and performed live by Ogrodnik.
