Manual Cinema has been wowing audiences since 2010 with its creations of performance collectives that range from the horror film adaptation, ‘Candy Man’ to ‘The Forger’ and ‘Christmas Carol’ and even a story about an un-scary monster, Leonardo. The company uses vintage overhead projectors, puppets, actors, live camera feeds, multiple screens, multi-channel sound design and a live music ensemble to transform the experience of going to the cinema into something unknown and new. Manual Cinema’s ‘Frankenstein’, is adapted from Mary Shelley’s famous and ground-breaking novel with the concept of the show created by Drew Dir. It was devised by him along with Sarah Fornace and Julia Miller, mixing flashes of Shelley’s biography to create an unforeseen tale. The evocative combination of shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques and original music and sound design by Ben Kauffman & Kyle Vegter creates a mixture of horror and beauty, questioning where one begins and the other ends. The real-life and fictional narratives of Shelley, Victor Frankenstein and the infamous monster exposes the corruption of community, family and education and how much it can shape a person… or monster, and how destruction can come from anywhere or anyone. Make sure you have seats for Manual Cinema’s ‘Frankenstein’ and experience the production that captures lightning in a bottle.
