Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster is a critically-acclaimed production by Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) and BAC Beatbox Academy, inspired by Mary Shelley’s classic monstrous tale of power and persecution.

Part electrifying gig, part thrilling theatre, Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster is a powerful and poetic show that pushes the power of the human voice to its expressive, musical and rhythmic limits. Six performers take apart Shelley’s original story 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.

Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster 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?!
