The following description comes from the event organizer.

It was a wet and ungenial summer when Mary Shelley devised the idea for Frankenstein. Mary, her husband Percy, and stepsister Claire took a trip to visit Claire's lover, Lord Byron, in Geneva. During the visit, Byron suggested that he, Mary, Percy, and Byron's physician, John Polidori, have a competition to write the best ghost story to pass time stuck indoors. Adapted by co-artistic directors Fosse Jack and Sailor St. Claire, with choreography by Fosse Jack and Trixie Paprika, and direction by Lulu La Lune, A Metamodern Prometheus revisits this summer in Geneva in a literary burlesque where the real and fantastical lives of Shelley, Dr. Frankenstein, and the Creature are stitched together to reveal a terribly beautiful patchwork of existence.
