Performance Santa Fe
Manual Cinema's Frankenstein
Love, loss, and creation merge in unexpected ways as Manual Cinema presents its thrilling version of the Gothic tale Frankenstein. In this groundbreaking production, the Chicago-based performance collective stitches together shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, sound effects, and live music to tell the tale of Frankenstein, his monster, and the biography of author Mary Shelley. The result is an unexpected lesson about the beauty and horror of creation, exposing how family, community, and education shape personhood – or destroy it by their absence. Manual Cinema electrifies Mary Shelley’s timeless novel for a new generation.
