Frankenstein // transcends nature.

Frankenstein / is Mary Shelley’s gothic novel adapted for a world that was once unimaginable – one in which life can be conceived in a laboratory instead of a womb.

Doctor Frankenstein is a childless woman, a scientist obsessed with becoming a mother. One night she succeeds in her experiments and sparks life into a monstrous creature – a miraculous conception. Has Frankenstein taken things too far, to a place
where the violent need to procreate has upset the balance of nature itself?

Looking back to a classic to see into the future, THE RABBLE’s mutated tale / transcends nature.
