Windward Community College Presents ‘Metamorphoses’
By Mary Zimmerman performed by
WCC Theatre 260 students at Palikū Theatre
October 21–29, 2016
KĀNE‘OHE, HI – Metamorphoses, an award-winning, lyrical adaptation of Ovid's masterpiece by Mary Zimmerman, recounts ancient Greek mythological tales for a contemporary audience. Metamorphoses is onstage at Palikū Theatre October 21st through October 29th.
Midas, a man who covets only wealth, gains a horrific, supernatural power; Alcyone wanders in search of her drowned husband; Erysicthon offends the goddess Ceres and is driven to destruction by Hunger; Aphrodite smites the love-scorning Myrrha with an unnatural passion. In Orpheus and Eurydice, a poetic meditation on memory, loss and time is presented; Eros, Psyche, Phateon and his therapist, Pomona and Vertumnus, Philomen and his beloved wife—renowned gods, ineffable goddesses, playful nymphs and inimitable mortals populate this enchanting landscape. Metamorphoses is a Post-modern staging of these timeless stories of the eternal power of love to transform.
