Arthur Pita's award-winning dance-theatre adaptation of Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis will be staged at the Joyce Theatre in New York, with Royal Ballet Principal Edward Watson reprising his role as Gregor Samsa. Performances will run from 17-29 September.

Prior to its US transfer, the piece will be broadcast in the UK by Sky Arts 2 on Monday 27 May at 8pm.

The adaptation has attracted critical acclaim since having its premiere in September 2011; winning Olivier, Southbank Sky Arts and Critics Circle National Dance Awards.

The Metamorphosis tells the story of salesman Gregor Samsa who wakes up one morning as an insect, and is brought to life through innovative and distinctive choreography and direction from Arthur Pita. The piece includes an intense sound-world score by composer Frank Moon.

Watch a behind the scenes glimpse at how The Metamorphosis is staged.

The Metamorphosis runs from 17-29 September 2013 at the Joyce Theatre in New York. Tickets go on sale on 23 May via the Joyce Theatre website.

    Oh, I would do anything to get the chance of buying this piece of art as a DVD. PLEASE. I am just not able to see it live and would so love to watch it.
