Zoom Webinar, Mainz, Germany
One morning Gregor Samsa woke in his bed from uneasy dreams and found he had turned into a monstrous verminous bug.
In that moment his world instantly changed. Unable to leave his home, he could not work, he could not communicate, he could not hold his family close, he went from provider to burden. He was on mute while the world revolved around him.
A cast of 12, all of whom awoke to a different world 6 months ago, without work, forced to reinterpret their profession, their identity, their very worth to the world, offer a reinterpretation of Franz Kafka’s classic novella for our times.
Presented via a Zoom webinar, this live performance is an experiment in recreating the highly interactive nature of Hijinx’s productions via the functionality that Zoom offers. You, the audience, may even become part of the action, so make sure you are dressed appropriately, or at the very least, dressed.
