Acrobatics and dance-theatre, ‘Frantic’ uses a rich physical language to pull apart it’s subject - our relentless devotion to busyness. Choreographed around a bespoke wheel structure containing a hidden water system for a rain-soaked finale.
2013 Gi20 Audience Vote Prize Winner & 2014 Without Walls Commission, Frantic has just completed it’s first 32 date UK/ international tour in which it was met with huge audience and industry acclaim.
“…an excellent piece of theatre. It captured the heart of my whole family … we too had to watch it twice. …tremendous emotional reach” Sally Manser, Royal Opera House
“so moving and beautiful I was almost in tears. Your presentation was a joy, so balletic, gentle, meaningful, speaking of the human condition. Thank you” Jeremy Haywood, Norfolk & Norwich Festival audience
“…one of the finest short dance pieces I have seen for some time…an intensely moving experience” Richard Ings, Arts Council England
