Maria Caruso's METAMORPHOSIS is Coming to the West End for Two Nights
Maria Caruso is to make her West End debut with her critically acclaimed solo show, 'Metamorphosis', performed without the utterance of a single word and considered one the most unique works of theatre in decades.

Hailed as one of Caruso's greatest solo creations to date, 'Metamorphosis has been performed across the globe since its critically acclaimed five-month run off-Broadway in 2021.

It plays at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, on Monday 27 June & Monday 4 July at 8pm.

A dance theatre work, heavily influenced by the artist's ballet and modern vocabularies, the audience is immersed in the emotion of the creator's true story and selfless expression on the stage. Her entire body transfixes the audience through her raw and personal metamorphosis, leaving you changed forever through the universality of emotions on stage.

'Metamorphosis - The Film', a documentary film directed by, Michael Kelly, nephew of famed dancer/actor/singer Gene Kelly and produced by Sam Sandora, will be released later this year.
'Metamorphosis' highlights life's many transitions and the emotions that accompany them. Although based on Caruso's own experiences, the drastic emotional shifts presented in her solo performance are shared among all of us, especially as the pandemic transformed our lives -stripping us of our routines that upheld normalcy and provided us with time to reflect on our own lives. Caruso's inspiration for 'Metamorphosis' came from her own life experiences that fill the pages of her story. From fear, to rage, to confidence, Caruso expresses the changes her character undergoes through a series of costume changes into various coloured dresses.

Following Caruso's performance of Martha Graham's iconic solo, 'Lamentations', 'Metamorphosis' premiered in 2018 at Israel's Karmiel Dance Festival and has since been performed on five continents.
