About this event

Electrifying gig. Thrilling theatre. Tongue-twisting vocal gymnastics.

Mary Shelley's original, re-imagined with songs, soundscapes and sonic trickery. Experience the power of the human voice breathing life into monsters all around us. Frankenstein will leave you asking: who are the monsters we fear? Who created them? And how the hell did they just do that with their voices?!

BAC Beatbox Academy is Battersea Arts Centre, London's homegrown young collective. Having performed at The Royal Festival Hall, Latitude Festival and appeared on Gareth Malone's The Choir (BBC Two), the Edinburgh smash hit makes its Australian debut.

All performances of Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster will be Relaxed. This means we'll take a relaxed attitude to noise and movement in the auditorium. Latecomers will be admitted, and re-admittance will be allowed throughout the show. Ear defenders will be available for those with sensory sensitivities.

RCC & BAC Beatbox Academy

The BAC Beatbox Academy 'On Tour' group are a South West London-based collective of beatboxers, rappers and vocalists aged 19-27 making original a-capella cross-genre hip-hop and spoken word, specialising in live improvisation under the direction of musician Conrad Murray.

Since its inception in 2008, BAC’s Beatbox Academy has pro-actively engaged harder to reach groups in areas of significant deprivation in Wandsworth, including BAME communities, young carers and children at risk of engaging in crime. Over the past 10 years of the Academy nurturing rising talent and pushing the boundaries of sound and music, the cast of Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster has developed; from a collective of amateur participants into highly-accomplished performers and music leaders.
