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

 

Nothing to hide behind. Nothing but the beat you create. The Southwest London-based collective Battersea Arts Center Beatbox Academy is composed of beatboxers, rappers, and vocalists who are ages 19-27. This talented group of performers puts vocal percussion front and center using thrilling theater and tongue-twisting vocal gymnastics. Using Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein as inspiration, the collective dug into their own life experiences and discovered a shared frustration with a world that increasingly mistrusts its youth. Building on Mary Shelley’s revolutionary and relevant ideas, they re-imagined the classic novel to create Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster. This theatrical tour de force invites your students to explore the power of technology and social media, as well as the obsession with impossible ideals of beauty, all of which can lead to bullying.

Please note: May contain adult themes and language.
