SCOTTISH PREMIERE | A BATTERSEA ARTS CENTRE AND BAC BEATBOX ACADEMY PRODUCTION
Electrifying gig. Thrilling theatre. Tongue-twisting vocal gymnastics.
Mary Shelley’s original, re-imagined with songs, soundscapes and sonic trickery. Experience the power of the human voice breathing life into monsters all around us. 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?!
BAC Beatbox Academy is Battersea Arts Centre’s homegrown young collective. Having performed at The Royal Festival Hall, Latitude Festival and appeared on Gareth Malone’s The Choir (BBC Two), the collective make their Scottish debut.
Each performance (excluding 10pm) will kick off with a curtain raiser performance created by young people from Leith Academy as part of a collaborative project between Edinburgh International Festival, Battersea Arts Centre and Traverse Theatre.
All performances of Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster will be Relaxed. This means we'll take a relaxed attitude to noise and movement in the auditorium. Latecomers will be admitted, and re-admittance will be allowed throughout the show. Ear defenders will be available for those with sensory sensitivities.
