Presented by Battersea Arts Centre and BAC Beatbox Academy
Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster is a critically-acclaimed, Off West End Award Winning gig-theatre production by Battersea Arts Centre and BAC Beatbox Academy, inspired by the original monstrous tale of power and persecution.
Part electrifying gig, part thrilling theatre, Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster is a powerful and poetic show that pushes the power of the human voice to its expressive, musical and rhythmic limits. Six performers with six microphones take apart Mary Shelley’s original and reimagine a world of modern monsters–from our overstimulated digital age to the pressures to conform – while taking musical inspirations from Pachelbel to The Prodigy.
The production marks 10 years of nurturing rising talent and pushing the boundaries of sound and music with BAC Beatbox Academy; Battersea Arts Centre’s young performance collective.
Frankenstein will leave you asking: Who are the monsters we fear? Who created them? And how the hell did they just do that with their voices?
All performances of Frankenstein are Relaxed – designed to extend a warm welcome to people who might find it hard to follow the conventions of theatre etiquette. This means audiences are free to move about, make noise and come and go during the show.
