The Modern Prometheus

The Modern Prometheus is an intensive workshop in collaboration with the Danish arts school Kulturentreprenør with the aim of exploring Frankenstein by Mary Shelley by viewing it through a Transhumanism lens.

Shelley’s book is subtitled The Modern Prometheus referring to the Greek myth where a Titan steals the sacred fire from the gods to give it to humans. Many consider the myth of Prometheus to be the first notion of Transhumanism; thanks to the control of fire, human beings obtained a power that allowed them to develop and achieve unimaginable advances. With these ideas as a basis, workshop participants must dive deep into the Gothic novel and create a performance with their own interpretation of Frankenstein‘s plot.
