Description

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’s homegrown young collective. Having performed at The Royal Festival Hall, Latitude Festival and appeared on Gareth Malone’s The Choir (BBC Two), the collective make their Scottish debut. ‘Mind-blowing’ ***** (Guardian).
