• Cal Performances at Home Beyond the Stage

Artist Conversation with Manual Cinema

Co-Artistic Director of Manual Cinema Drew Dir, UC Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ, and Cal Performances Executive and Artistic Director Jeremy Geffen talk about what makes this gothic tale so timeless and haunting, how it relates to Silicon Valley today, how Mary Shelley’s life influenced her story, and more in this Beyond the Stage artist conversation.

This artist conversation video was recorded in conjunction with the Manual Cinema; Frankenstein performance, part of the 2020/21 Cal Performances at Home Fall Season.

Go Beyond the Stage with behind-the-scenes artist talks and interviews, lectures and public forums with UC Berkeley faculty, recommended reading, and other interesting connections to the Cal Performances At Home programs.
