Written and performed by Jody Christopherson, this multi-media solo horror piece is based on the creation of Mary Shelley’s 'Frankenstein,' Luigi Galvani’s discovery of “animal electricity,” and the birth of modern feminism.
'AMP' is an exploration of harnessing the universal forces within as paths to freedom and gender equality. This is a work that connects history to present day to explore the progress we have made, and the dreams we have yet to achieve. Who are our monsters and what does that mean for a society? Can being revolting become a revolution? An electrical current. A modern Prometheus. An investigation of gender, sexuality, Galvani, Mary Shelley, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
