Normality cannot be defined without the aberrations that create its demons, nightmares, monsters, abnormalities and deviant figures. In life, you rarely meet these monsters, criminals, cripples and deviants because these personas non gratas are hidden away by society in institutions. The ‘monster, the deviant, the someone’ is hatefully free, because they do not care about the limits of others. Society is jealous of their freedom, because it cannot and does not want to include them. Society’s fear is much greater and its cowardice much deeper. That is why it simply eliminates them.

Frankenstein-project talks of what those who are considered different are allowed to do in a world that is defined by others. Painfully and realistically, it shows how an aversion to ‘normal’ people arises. Since its premiere in 2007, this play by the award-winning movie and theater director Mundruczó has toured throughout Europe and this will be its debut in Latin America.
