About

This transformative experience explores the ephemeral nature of the self by allowing participants to redefine their relationships to their own bodies, to the bodies of others, and to the environment they share. Set in a majestic world drawn by Wesley Allsbrook, Metamorphic creates a whimsical setting for participants to converse with no preconceptions and understand the body as a vehicle for change, expression, and creation.
