Beast boxers: Frankenstein

Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster is at Contact Manchester May 10–14, a gig-theatre production by Battersea Arts Centre and BAC Beatbox Academy, inspired by the original monstrous tale.

Six performers with six microphones take apart Mary Shelley’s original and reimagine a world of modern monsters.

Using their mouths to make every sound, they challenge how today’s society creates its own monsters.

Running Time: 80 mins (no interval). Recommended for ages 14+.
