Event Series Event Series: A Metamodern Prometheus

A Metamodern Prometheus

October 6, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$25 – $50

It was a wet and ungenial summer when Mary Shelley devised the idea for Frankenstein.

Mary, her husband Percy, and stepsister Claire took a trip to visit Claire’s lover, Lord Byron, in Geneva. During the visit, Byron suggested that he, Mary, Percy, and Byron’s physician, John Polidori, have a competition to write the best ghost story to pass time stuck indoors.

Adapted by co-artistic directors Fosse Jack and Sailor St. Claire, with choreography by Fosse Jack and Trixie Paprika, and direction by Lulu La Lune, A Metamodern Prometheus revisits this summer in Geneva in a literary burlesque where the real and fantastical lives of Shelley, Dr. Frankenstein, and the Creature are stitched together to reveal a terribly beautiful patchwork of existence.
