Frankenstein / The Creature


Frankenstein / The Creature

Based on the novel by Mary Shelly

“I know ‘Frankenstein’, but I’ve never read the original story.”

Aren’t there quite a few of these people?
The original story by Mary Shelley is not a horror, it is a full-length novel considered as “The World’s First Science Fiction”. The image of ‘Franken’ for most people are probably a monster with a bolt in his neck, but that comes from the figure in the movie film version.
The original story is a love-hate drama between the “creature” and the “scientist” who created it, with diverse of theme such as “Science Development”, “Discrimination and Prejudice” and “Intelligence”. Based on the original novel, MOMENTS version is adapting it to stage with fertile imagination reflecting on various issues that are brought to light by the coronavirus pandemic, fully using MOMENTS’ signature physicality, ensemble and props. Now, in this time surrounded by invisible fear, I would like to think about how to deal with the unknown fear through this piece.

Adaptor/Director Daisuke Sagawa
