Manual Cinema’s Frankenstein (Multimedia/Puppetry/Live Music)

Theatre, Cinema & Dance Events

November 2, 2019

Weis Center for the Performing Arts

7:30 p.m. Weis Center

Love, loss, and creation merge in unexpected ways in this thrilling classic gothic tale conceived by Manual Cinema. Stories of Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein, and his Monster expose how the forces of family, community, and education shape personhood—or destroy it by their absence.

In a special world premiere presentation, internationally-renowned multimedia company Manual Cinema stitches together the classic story of Frankenstein with Mary Shelley’s own biography to create an unexpected story about the beauty and horror of creation.

Manual Cinema’s Frankenstein combines handmade shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, and innovative sound and music to create immersive visual stories for stage and screen. Manual Cinema combines vintage overhead projectors, multiple screens, puppets, actors, live feed cameras, multi-channel sound design, and a live music ensemble.

Tickets: Adults $25 Seniors 62+ and subscribers: $20 Youth 18 and under: $15
