At a time when audiences cannot unite in a theatre auditorium, Collide Theatre joins forces with LIVR, the world’s first virtual reality content platform dedicated to theatre.

We offer exclusively a special 360 experience of our show. 

A nightmarish Kafkaesque experience!


In the course of one night a beloved son turns into a hated freak.​

But is he really different?

Is there really a reason for his family to be as appalled?

This is Gregor Samsa’s story.

It is also the story of anyone who has been made to feel as vermin.​

This is not a piece about a man turning into an insect.

It is a piece about a family not accepting their child for who they are.

This new version, created by director Emily Louizou, addresses one of the biggest human fears: feeling like an outsider – or rather, being made to feel different, particularly by the people most close to you.

A chorus of five performers collectively, through storytelling, dance and music, bring to life the story of Gregor Samsa in a celebration of his uniqueness and the uniqueness of all those before and after him who had to fight against their family’s alienation.

★★★★ “Metamorphosis is a fantastic show, pre-senting a fresh and original take on Kafka that will please both the knowledgeable and the curious.” PlaysToSee

★★★★ “This staging of Metamorphosis is starkly original and works as a moving piece of story-telling. It’s certainly provocative, engaging theatre.” The Panoptic

★★★★ “Perhaps the philosophy that supports Metamorphosis is deeper and wider than childhood, but this fresh interpretation of Kafka’s wretched, haunting tale propels it straight into the 21st Century where it belongs to be revisited yet again, and perhaps for centuries to come.”  LondonTheatre1
