Performance Organs, Tissues and Candy Games (Inspired by Frankenstein) An NYUAD Theater Program Production

Open to the Public


Location NYUAD Arts Center

“Organs, Tissues and Candy Games” is an investigation into modern day monstrosity. It questions the role of policymaking in scientific advancement and the insatiable pursuit for immortality and security. In this quest for power, must progress always be prioritized against all its collateral damage?

Working with the acclaimed Zoukak Theatre Company from Lebanon, NYUAD students use the story of Frankenstein and his monster to follow a panorama of characters from the past to the future as they struggle with their self-image, with megalomania, beautification, love, desire, loss, confinement, and—ultimately—death.

Inspired by the classic Mary Shelley text, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.

Please note that this performance is intended for audiences ages 15 and over, and that guests with disabilities may be seated in the theater’s balcony.
