About Frantic Assembly.

Frantic Assembly is one of the UK’s leading theatre companies. Their performances combine theatre and movement to tell compelling stories. Past productions include The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Othello, Pool (No Water) and Lovesong.

Frantic’s Method approaches devising as a series of tasks, each broken down into building blocks. Performers are encouraged to take a moment back to its ‘simplest truth and build from there’. Artistic Director, Scott Graham, describes this as a ‘language’. The process is created from recognising his own ‘limitations coupled with a desire to teach and share something as soon as I learnt it.’

Frantic Assembly regularly engages with schools and young people through their productions, accompanying resources and Ignition programme. Ignition works with 16-24 year-olds from different backgrounds, skills and stories, helping them find their voice in theatre.

Frantic Digital.

The new Frantic Digital platform is split into two main sections – Frantic Flashbacks and Frantic Create. The site also includes warm-ups, teaching resource packs and further material to learn about their process.

Frantic Flashbacks include videos giving insights into the creative and rehearsal process. In the first Scott Graham takes you behind the scenes and into the rehearsal room of Beautiful Burnout. In the second, Scott Graham talks with actor and Frantic Practitioner Maggie Ann Bain about her experience performing in the show.

Frantic Create gives practical, creative tasks. Join Simon Pittman, Frantic Assembly Associate, as he leads you through a creative task inspired by some of the rehearsal processes for Beautiful Burnout.

Looking for an active warm-up to do at home? Join Simon Pittman for a cardio warm-up inspired by the rehearsal process. The video includes stretching and boxing-inspired cardio movement to get the blood pumping!
