Event description

Description

Ben Haggerty, Storyteller

Sianed Jones, Musician


Enter a world of feverish dreaming, as storyteller Ben Haggarty and musician Sianed Jones present an intense steam punk interpretation of Mary Shelley's modern myth. Two master performers explore the nature of the consciousness of a man made by man and the responsibility of the creator towards the created. Truly a story for our time, Frankenstein speaks of power unleashed and our fear of the unknown.

Drawing on the original story, Hollywood’s cinematic retellings, Greek and Jewish legends, and pop culture, this powerful and startling contemporary performance combines spoken narrative, vocals, bass and electric violin, to lure audiences into the imagined world of Dr Frankenstein and the monster he created.
