Seattle Theatre Group Presents Manual Cinema's Shadow Puppet And Cinematic Storytelling With FRANKENSTEIN

Seattle Theatre Group presents Manual Cinema's "Frankenstein" for one night only at the Moore Theatre on Tuesday, March 7, 2023, at 7:30 PM. Manual Cinema, a Chicago-based performance collective, uses vintage overhead projectors, multiple screens, puppets, actors, live feed cameras, multi-channel design, and a music ensemble to transform the experience and expectations of attending the cinema, imbuing it with liveliness, ingenuity, and theatricality. This event is part of STG's 2022/23 Performing Arts Season.

Tickets are $32.50 (not including fees) and are on sale now at www.stgpresents.org, or in person at the Paramount Theatre box office at 911 Pine Street in Downtown Seattle.

Love, loss, and creation merge in unexpected ways as Manual Cinema presents its thrilling version of the classic Gothic tale Frankenstein. In this performance, the collective stitches together Frankenstein with the biography of the original novel's author, Mary Shelley, to create an unexpected story about the beauty and horror of creation. The real-life and fictional narratives of Shelley, Victor Frankenstein, and Frankenstein's monster expose how family, community, and education shape personhood - or destroy it by their absence.

At "Frankenstein," audience members will have the opportunity at the end of the performance to join the collective onstage to get an up-close look at how it creates its magical works.
