In theater 

Heidi Jacot (pictured), fresh off the December production of her same-sex Romeo & Juliet, is putting on her own one-woman adaptation of Ovid's Metamorphoses. Jacot says her adaptation centers around "purpose and calling," symbolized in Ovid by the gods who visit mortals. Prometheus, who molded man to the form of the gods, had high aspirations for his creations. According to Jacot, how we respond to that call is told in the stories of Daphne and Apollo, Arachne and Narcissus, stories that illustrate our impulses either to turn away from the calling, become rooted like a tree, or to become obsessed with ourselves. Jacot focuses on the little known story of the god Vertumnus, who courted the nymph Pomona by dropping his many facades and appearing as he was himself. Jacot takes the stage this Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m., March 7-10, at The Skylight Exchange. There will be a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee at Borders Books of Chapel Hill. Admission is free. Call 362-4539 or e-mail for details.
