PERFORMING ARTS LIVE
Love, loss and creation merge in unexpected ways in this thrilling gothic classic conceived by internationally renowned multimedia art collective Manual Cinema. Combining live theatre and music with handmade shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques and original musical compositions, Manual Cinema creates immersive visual stories for stage and screen. Its most recent work stitches together the classic tale of Frankenstein with Mary Shelley’s own life to create an unexpected story about the beauty—and horror—of creation.
Duration: Approximately 70 minutes
This production contains the use of theatrical haze and strobe lights.
