Best Bits

A mash up of creative urban beats with raw rhythmic storytelling. Frankenstein is a brand new gig-theatre by BAC Beatbox Academy, inspired by the original monstrous tale of power and persecution.

Using nothing but their mouths and a microphone, this talented and dynamic vocal collective present an electrifying poetic and political live concert of song, soundscape, improvised tracks and battles – exploring the idea of what makes a modern monster.

  • An innovative meeting of beatbox, gig and theatre
  • Inspired by Mary Shelley's groundbreaking 1818 novel
  • The young cast ask who the 21st century monsters are and who made them.
  • Using soundscapes, song and ensemble physicality they recount a tale of power, persecution and percussion.
