For their literary series, Hugo House asks writers and performers to create brand-new material based on classic works of literature. Fiction writer Benjamin Percy (author of The Dark Net, and a man with the deepest voice in literature), novelist and essayist Vanessa Hua (author of A River of Stars, which made several Top 10 lists last year), and local poet Keetje Kuipers will riff on Franz Kafka's novella The Metamorphosis, about a young salesman who wakes up one morning and discovers that he has transformed into a giant insect. I'm crossing my fingers for a long literary rant from Percy about how much bosses suck, or an essay from Hua defending the sister for abandoning her giant insect brother and essentially reclaiming her time. But even if none of that happens, we'll still have sci-fi R&B songwriter SassyBlack around to perform new Kafka-inspired music, which will undoubtedly rule.
