BLEACH* FESTIVAL, THE FARM, Co3 AUSTRALIA AND THE ARTS CENTRE GOLD COAST PRESENT FRANK ENSTEIN

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

“The Farm’s new work Frank Enstein speaks to the festival’s greater sense of determination and strength in a playful production where the realisation that physically perfect does not always equal personal passion is explored.” – Bleach* Festival Artistic Director Louise Bezzina

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? 

 Frank Enstein is a retelling of the classic tale for children and adults, a magical new dance-theatre work illuminating a path to self-acceptance. This is theatre as if made by Michel Gondry, handcrafted and full of the love of old fashioned techniques. 

 2016 Helpmann Award nominees, The Farm, with their wicked sense of humour, magic and dance, combined with the fierce physicality of Co:3, will make this a show for the child in all of us.  

TIMES: 6.30pm – 7.30pm | Matinee Saturday 2.00pm – 3.00pm
