We regret to inform our audiences that this show has been cancelled.

GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN say: “It is with deep regret that we have had to withdraw from presenting Frankenshow at Fierce Festival. We sincerely appreciate the interest in the work that audiences have shown, and thank you for your support.”

Fierce Festival in partnership with Birmingham Hippodrome Present

Frankenshow marks GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN’s misguided first foray into digital performance. They don’t have much of the right equipment or know-how, but they’ve heard somewhere that digital is The Future. The two MCs seem disconnected. Come to think of it, they seem to not quite even be here at all.

In a landscape of battery-operated Armageddon, blockbusters, soundtracks and speeches are bolted together with glee, to create a lo-fi monstrosity of epic proportions.

Lurching towards a post-human terrain, a universe where even theatre is carried out by drones, Frankenshow is a middle-of-the-night waking dream about laziness, labour, control, the ethics of robotics, the craving of a human touch, and the unreal fear of a very real war.

GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN is a UK-based performance company, making work which plays with glory, endurance, artifice and the banal, since 2008.

Originally commissioned for experimentica at Chapter, Cardiff.

This production takes place in The Patrick Centre, Birmingham Hippodrome.
