Metamorphoses 1°- 5°  is a series of five performances that reflect on some fundamental questions of contemporary human beings in dialogue with Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Each of the performances enters a broader context of Ovid’s Metamorphoses on the basis of particular current political or social events, connecting them to the universal topics of humanity and deep contradictions of modern society. Central to the performances are particular 'civilised' political and moral human passions that, due to the contemporary feeling of political powerlessness, the disintegration of imagined communities, the impotence of language and the growing oppositions between nature and culture, assume universal character and thus radically intervene in the modes of communal living.
