frankenstein photoLove, loss, and creation merge in unexpected ways in this thrilling version of the classic Gothic tale, Frankenstein.

Using more than 500 handmade puppets, old school projectors, as well as live actors and cinematic elements, Emmy-award winning troupe Manual Cinema returns to ArtsEmerson to share its explosive, layered interpretation of the classic horror novel, Frankenstein.

In this eye-popping visual feast, the Chicago-based performance collective imaginatively stitches together the classic tale of Frankenstein with the biography of its author, Mary Shelley, to create an unexpected story about the beauty and horror of creation.

The real-life and fictional narratives of Shelley, Victor Frankenstein, and Frankenstein’s monster expose how family, community, and education shape personhood – or destroy it by their absence.

Recommended for Ages 13+
