And the creator gave form to the monster. Lena Kitsopoulou brings Frankenstein and his monstrous creation to the stage, and ponders the price paid for creativity. Is the monster maybe me? Or is it you?

The Victorian myth of Frankenstein – the creator who gave form to a humanoid monster – brings Lena Kitsopoulou back to the Onassis Stegi stage. Romanticism and nihilism, eugenics and ruthless satire, all inspired by a story written in 1820 by the 19-year-old Mary Shelley – “Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus” – forever haunting world literature with the story of a doctor and anatomist who gathers human body parts, constructs a humanoid creature, and gives it life through the power of electricity. The young scientist Victor Frankenstein, like a new Prometheus, creates life out of death – and is relentlessly punished for his act.
