Battersea Arts Centre and BAC Beatbox Academy Present Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster

Saturday, 18 June 2022, 5.00pm

Battersea Arts Centre and BAC Beatbox Academy present Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster as part of Cork Midsummer Festival.

“How the hell did they just do that with their voices?!”

Part electrifying gig, part thrilling theatre, this powerful and poetic show pushes the energy of the human voice to its expressive, musical and rhythmic limits. Six performers with six microphones take apart Mary Shelley’s original and reimagine a world of modern monsters – from our over-stimulated digital age to the pressures to conform – while taking musical inspirations from Pachelbel to The Prodigy.

Inspired by the original monstrous tale of power and persecution, the critically acclaimed production marks 10 years of nurturing rising talent and pushing the boundaries of sound and music with BAC Beatbox Academy, Battersea Arts Centre’s young performance collective. In Cork for just two performances, Frankenstein will leave you asking: Who are the monsters we fear? Who created them? And how the hell did they just do that with their voices?!
