Digital School Day Performance for Grades 7-12:
Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster
Battersea Arts Centre Beatbox Academy

 

In BAC Beatbox Academy’s hit show, six talented performers interpret Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein from their own perspective as young people growing up in 21st-century Britain. Two centuries after 18-year-old Mary Shelley wrote the text, these young artists explore how modern monsters are created in today’s society. This musical film is part performance, part documentary, with the performers’ voices as the only instruments.

The cast creates a breath-taking musical soundscape filled with memorable original tracks, bringing their own interpretation of the Frankenstein story to life with a dazzling array of vocal talents including rap, beatboxing, and song.

Originally devised for the stage, the live show Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster was a huge hit at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and toured internationally.

This performance contains strong language and adult themes.
