What would Frankenstein be today? When Marie Shelley wrote her modern Prometheus two-hundred years ago, the climate was drastically modified by a volcanic eruption. With a few friends on the edge of Lake Geneva, she played at telling scary stories.

In La Fabrique des monstres, Jean-François Peyret directs actors locked up in a theater because of a climactic problem – two actors used to theater and film, Jeanne Balibar and Jacques Bonnaffée, two young artists, Joël Maillard and Victor Lenoble, accompanied by a musical machine imagined by Daniele Ghisi, based on an uncontrollable algorithm.

This work will premiere at the Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne before its performance in Bobigny during ManiFeste-2018.
