Event description

Description

What started out as a writing competition among friends in 1816 gave birth to one of the most well-known horror stories to date. This year, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein turns 200.

To celebrate, Science Gallery Melbourne is hosting an evening of Frankenstein-themed spoken word poetry. Established and budding poets will perform works exploring ideas such as gothic sci-fi, transhumanism, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, and genetic engineering in the collision of arts and science.

Featured poets on the night will include Alicia Sometimes, Leah Kaminsky, Emilie Zoey Baker and Christopher James White.

This event is part of the Melbourne Spoken Word & Poetry Festival. To find out about the festival and other events, visit mswpf.com.au. The full program for the festival is available at https://www.mswpf.com.au/program-1
