Mirroring the grotesque creature of Mary Shelley’s iconic novel, scenes of gothic horror are cobbled together with Green T’s signature physical style. An eerie parade of misshapen beings, a visual nod to the 1931 Karloff film, oversized puppets, and at the center, the heartbreaking, female-centered story of an ambitious medical student who brings a creature to life then shuns it. Locked out of society, deprived of human contact, understanding and compassion, the creature tragically lashes out.
Green T Productions was founded in Minneapolis in 1999 and has subsequently produced over 30 productions highlighting their characteristic stylized-movement-based story telling. Green T’s mission is to inspire, expand horizons and challenge assumptions with creative physical performance that straddles the boundaries of music, dance and theater. Green T won a 2015 Ivey Award for Prince Rama’s Journey, a collaboration with Sumunar Indonesian Music and Dance. Kathy Welch is Green T Productions’ Artistic Director and has directed all and written or adapted most GTP productions. Green T Productions is supported by ArtsLab, a leadership and strategy development program of Arts Midwest. Kathy has also been Artistic and Education Director at the Old Gem Theater in New Richmond Wisconsin since 2002.
