“You’re creating an illusion of movement, an illusion of something being alive - and hopefully, if you do it properly, they stop seeing the puppeteers, and they just see the creature.”
Actor and theatre director Eliot Giuralarocca discusses his process for bringing John Ginman’s adaptation of Frankenstein to life for Blackeyed Theatre in 2017. Giuralarocca explores the key themes of love and identity as well as the context of Mary Shelley’s original novel and explains his decision to use a bunraku style puppet to represent Frankenstein's monster.
Giuralarocca also provides invaluable insight into life as an actor and director, exploring the challenges of balancing both roles, and considers the influence of Mike Alfreds’ methods on his work with the actors in the rehearsal room.
