Meditations on Metamorphosis

'Franz Kafka has found his perfect modern interpreter in Steven Berkoff.' Financial Times

Focusing on rehearsals for the I992. Mitsubishi Theatre, Tokyo, production of his adaptation of Kafka's Metamorphosis, Steven Berkoff muses on the nine previous productions of the play over a twenty-three-year span, starting with his own performance as Gregor Samsa at the Round House, London, and taking in the productions in Los Angeles with Brad Davis, at the Mermaid in London with Tim Roth, in Paris with Roman Polanski and in New York with Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Meditations on 'Metamorphosis' dissects and illuminates Kafka's story and Berkoff's own stage adaptation, contrasting rehearsal techniques and performance styles between different cultures and sexes.

A valuable document for students, actors, directors and all fans, of the explosive dynamism of Steven Berkoff's work.
