“Is it better to out-monster the monster or to be quietly devoured?” – Nietzsche.
Taking an in-depth perspective at the human capacity to commit evils and embrace inner bestial power, the show is inspired by the renown tales of Dracula, Frankenstein, Steppenwolf, and more. Audiences will witness the journey of the creation of a monster, and experience those voices often left in the shadows. This creation piece explores what frightens humanity because isn’t it time to face your fears? (Toronto Fringe Festival program)
