Film: Imperfect Orchestra – Metamorphosis

Imperfect Orchestra - Metamorphosis

  • Theatre 1, Roland Levinsky Building

Save event

Imperfect Orchestra (IO) presents Metamorphosis, a short film exploring transformations through experimentation and abstraction in this contemporary reimagining of Franz Kafka's 1915 novella. 

IO's first foray into self-production of moving image uses the prism of 21st century life and its many distortions to explore our cultural and societal values. 

Continuing the use of live soundtrack, but with the inclusion of experimental live sound design, the film considers how these very values have transformed over time, and how they exert an almost farcical pressure upon all of us.
