Premiere 22 August 2021 | Kanneltalo, Helsinki
Welcome to the world of crazy scientists and groovy monsters with Finland’s best-known clown duo!
Red Nose Company’s Frankenstein is a playful interpretation of Mary Shelley’s classical story. The performance is filled with disco music, wonderful lights and reactive comedy. Together with the audience the actors build an exciting and far-out experience for the whole family.
Frankenstein is a central myth in our cultural history. It deals with the experience of otherness and the feeling of being different – something we all might be familiar with. In this performance, the young audiences are even led through the history and ethics of science.
Let the crazy fun begin!
