A TALE OF TERROR BEYOND WORDS
In writing perhaps the most celebrated horror story in English literature, eighteen-year-old Mary Shelley raised profound questions about life, death and the perils of scientific hubris. Now Shelley’s creation takes on new life as an intimate, intense and passion-filled synthesis of theatre and dance that explores the big question at the story’s heart: What does it mean to be human?
