About Manuel Cinema's FRANKENSTEIN

Hailed as “endlessly imaginative and exquisitely beautiful” by The New Yorker, Manual Cinema’s Frankenstein stitches together Mary Shelley’s classic novel and the author’s own biography to create a thrilling new gothic tale about the beauty––and horror––of creation.

The internationally renowned multimedia company Manual Cinema, whose production of The End of TV delighted New Haven audiences at the 2017 International Festival of Arts & Ideas, combines handmade shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, and innovative sound and music to create immersive visual stories for stage and screen.


Running time: Approximately 65 minutes with no intermission.
Talkbacks will follow each performance.


This Presentation is funded by Root Boy Slim Fund
