Inflatable Frankenstein
Radiohole (USA)

Influenced by James Whale’s Frankenstein films, Radiohole explodes the tumultuous and tragic life of Mary Shelley. Blood chilling and completely strange, Inflatable Frankenstein is brimming with whims, technological absurdity, and bodily fluids. A larger-than-life, Radiohole gothic teen sex dream. With Maggie Hoffman, Eric Dyer, Erin Douglass, Joseph Silovsky, and Mark Jaynes. Also introducing The Creature Without Organs.
 
“Deliriously entertaining”
The New York Times

Radiohole was birthed in a Brooklyn basement in 1998 by Erin Douglass, Eric Dyer, Maggie Hoffman and Scott Halverson Gillette. The company has produced ten original shows that have been presented at venues around New York City including PS122, the Kitchen and the Collapsable Hole (sic) and have toured nationally and internationally. Radiohole’s most recent show, “Whatever, Heaven Allows” was commissioned by PS122, The Walker Art Center and the Andy Warhol Museum through the Spaulding Gray Award. “Whatever, heaven Allows” had it’s European premiere in April 2012 at Katapult Teater at Godsbanen in Århus, Denmark. Over the years, Radiohole has earned a reputation as one of New York’s most tenacious and uncompromising ensembles.

 

Radiohole is a recipient of the Spalding Gray Award, and has appeared at PS122 with Whatever Heaven Allows and Fluke.

The Kitchen is a non-profit, interdisciplinary organization that provides innovative artists working in the media, literary, and performing arts with exhibition and performance opportunities to create and present new work. Using its own extensive history as a resource, the organization identifies, supports, and presents emerging and under-recognized artists who are making significant contributions to their respective fields as well as serves as a safe space for more established artists to take unusual creative risks.

The Kitchen is located in Chelsea, Manhattan and is accessible by the A, C, E, L and 1 subways. This historic region on the west side of Manhattan is home to the High Line, the Chelsea Historic District, the Fashion Institute of Technology and is an international shopping and art gallery destination. The Kitchen sits one block from the Hudson River, close to 10th avenue where audiences can pick from a plethora of restaurants scattered between 15th and 19th streets. Chelsea Piers is also one block from the theater and is a waterfront sports village hosting an abundance of bars, restaurants and shopping.
 
More than 100 art galleries have sprouted in west Chelsea, a part of the neighborhood that was industrial until only a few years ago. A once-decrepit stretch of Ninth Avenue between 19th and 21st Streets now has a cozy French ambience, with La Bergamote patisserie, La Cafetiere housewares and Le Gamin Cafe. Since opening on Ninth Avenue in 1997, Chelsea Market’s fishmongers, butchers, bakers and greengrocers have been welcomed by area food shoppers. The New York Times
