The runaway smash hit of the 2019 Edinburgh Festival arrives in Adelaide to make its Australian debut! Electrifying gig. Thrilling theatre. Tongue-twisting vocal gymnastics. Mary Shelley’s original is re-imagined with songs, soundscapes and sonic trickery. Experience the power of the human voice breathing life into monsters all around us. Frankenstein will leave you asking: who are the monsters we fear? Who created them?
Featuring a cast of mind-bogglingly skilled young beatboxers, this is a show like no other you’ve ever seen. Combining the genre of gig theatre and the artform of beatbox, Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster is extraordinary.
This show is brought to you by Battersea Arts Centre and BAC Beatbox Academy with workshops in partnership with Carclew.
All performances of Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster will be Relaxed. This means we’ll take a relaxed attitude to noise and movement in the auditorium. Latecomers will be admitted, and re-admittance will be allowed throughout the show. Ear defenders will be available for those with sensory sensitivities.
Selected performances will kick off with a curtain raiser performance created by young people from Adelaide, as part of a collaborative project between Carclew, RCC and Battersea Arts Centre. Curtain raiser performance dates will be announced in 2020.
