Metamorphoses

Written two thousand years ago, this narrative poem remains one of the most widely read works of the Golden Age of Latin literature. It represents the history of the world, from the Creation to Ovid’s times. The story is told through a series of myths, all of which contain the element of bodily transformation. Working together with dramaturge Jelena Mijović, director Aleksandar Popovski has turned this masterpiece of classical literature into a play which depicts life and relations between people as a series of inevitable transformations, the eternal change which can only be achieved through the greatest force of all – love. To achieve his goal, Popovski had help from his permanent assistants from the Numen Design group as well as from a team of extremely creative actors, a stellar cast which includes Nebojša Glogovac, Nataša Tapušković, Nikola Đuričko, Dragan Mićanović, Tamara Vučković, Goran Šušljik, Marija Vicković, Radovan Vujović, Nada Šargin and Jelena Đokić.

“…play by Popovski is an incisive, rich mosaic of trials and tribulations of love which appear as metaphors of life itself. Vulnerability, elusive emotions and love are a constant source of inspiration; love never dies and remains ever present, even in this day and age of hideously destructive materialism.” (POLITIKA)
