Circus, Dance

Love, freedom, blood, sweat and rain-storms: Frantic is an explosive and moving exploration of our relentless devotion to busyness.

Acrobatics and dance-theatre choreographed around a bespoke structure, Frantic uses a rich physical language to pull apart its subject – the reality of a running mind and one man’s thirst for escape.
