About this show

Told with hand-carved wooden string puppets, the Samsa family finds itself at the center of a reality television show. Under constant surveillance, acquiescing to the whims of the ever-present but unseen Director, the eldest son awakes to find himself transformed into a monstrous bug. Inspired by Kafka's novella, the ordeal unfolds and the family unravels in front of millions of viewers in an absurd world where the camera is always watching and the TV is always on.
