“Why transformation, you may wonder. According to the dictionary, the meaning of the word transformation is ‘a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance. A metamorphosis during the life cycle of an animal.’ We are in October, the quintessential month of change and transformation… starting from the seasonal shift. We just ended summer, days are getting shorter and shorter, we will start shivering, we will have to change our wardrobe, the way we dress, technically if we were animals, well we are, we should go to hibernation… so it is indeed a transformative time. It’s a season full of changes, when crops and fruits are gathered and leaves shade in to red, yellow and then fall, transforming completely the landscape in front of our eyes…”
As the discussion unfolds, the theme of Transformation finds its incarnations in a vast spectrum of subjects: from the archaic roots of Halloween, the folklore of the Venetian Carnival, and the current shifting trends of New York Fashion Week 2019, where the Melange Movement was a protagonist; to the transformation we could experience through the dramatic arts, with an exclusive look on the Sea Wall / A Life Broadway show with Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge.
