Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus

Based on the novel by Mary Shelley
Adapted and directed by Eleonora Ginardi and Timothy Wynn

13 July to 28 July
Spring Hill Reservoir

Celebrating 200 years since the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel, heartBeast are drawing on the original story of Frankenstein to create a dynamic original work.

Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus will be a new monster, telling the story of two conflicted creators – Victor Frankenstein and Mary Shelley – and their creations trying to carve a path for themselves in a society afraid of perilous possibilities.

The haunting depths of the historic Spring Hill Reservoir will become a darkened laboratory experimenting with Man and God, Biology and Technology. It may even flash with a bolt of electricity.
