Frank Enstein

For Children and Adults

 

"This is a thoughtful, engaging and necessary piece of dance theatre, that challenges how we view others"

PERTH ARTS LIVE

"I love storytelling that makes you think about your circumstances, challenging how you think about the world, and how you think about yourself in the world.

…Good theatre impresses you with athleticism, challenges your mind, and exercises your emotions. On all these fronts, Frank Enstein succeeds."

Frank could be a genius. Just one more ‘i’ and he’d be an Einstein!

Battling his own physical impairment, Frank harnesses electricity from a storm and animates his world by making his imaginary friends real, ‘perfect’ monsters to fulfil his desire to be ‘normal’ and to be accepted by others. But can he control what he creates? And who is the real monster anyway?
