The Kafka Project by Walt Jones

Directed by Walt Jones

World premiere by Walt Jones and the COMPANY

One of the most acclaimed and influential twentieth-century writers, Franz Kafka is renowned for prophetic and profoundly complex stories. His works are characterized by a grotesque vision of the world in which an individual undergoes a transformation in ways that society often finds reprehensible.

The Kafka Project is a collectively-created sampling of six of Kafka’s bizarre world of works, along with entries from his diaries and letters.

The centerpiece of this haunting evening – The Metamorphosis – follows the six-legged nightmare of traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who awakens one morning to discover he has been transformed into a giant bug. In a dramatic flurry, Gregor scrambles over walls, furniture and down banisters (without the aid of wires or harnesses in this theatrical production), conveying the wrenching sense of a terrified creature being drained of life as our actor seems to defy gravity on the out-of-kilter set.

“Kafka’s work is mysterious, hard to crack, challenging and compelling, and full of contradictions. His writing, while not ‘theatre,’ per se, is very theatrical.” – Walt Jones, project writer and director
