Love, loss, and creation merge
in unexpected ways in this thrilling classic gothic tale conceived by Manual
Cinema. Stories of Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein, and his Monster expose
how the forces of family, community, and education shape personhood—or destroy
it by their absence.
In a special world premiere
presentation, internationally-renowned multimedia company Manual Cinema
stitches together the classic story of Frankenstein with Mary Shelley’s own biography to
create an unexpected story about the beauty and horror of creation. Manual
Cinema’s Frankenstein combines handmade
shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, and innovative sound and music to create
immersive visual stories for stage and screen.
Manual Cinema combines vintage overhead projectors, multiple
screens, puppets, actors, live feed cameras, multi-channel sound design, and a
live music ensemble..
