Frankenstein is a brand-new gig theatre show from the BAC Beatbox Academy – it’s all live, all made from the mouth. The vocal collective present an electrifying hour of song, soundscape and beatbox inspired by the famous tale of a genius scientist and creation beyond control.
Through original music and spoken word the cast recounts a story of modern monsters, and asks who made them?
This is a contemporary re-imagining of a classic – a concept album woven together through spoken word and soundscape.
The cast invite local groups and performers to join them for a post-show jam!
