Frantic Assembly

Frantic Assembly – a contemporary theatre company who specialise in physical movement - visited Jack Hunt School on 13 January 2017 to lead a workshop for both GCSE and A level students. The four hour workshop taught the students the distinctive energetic style of the Frantic Assembly group to enhance the students own performance skills.  Beginning with the motto ‘Can you be terrified and fearless? the workshop aimed to explore how movement, dance and drama could be united to create an exciting theatrical experience. .  By the end of the session, students were able to lift one another safely and had thoroughly explored how stage space could be used to generate dramatic tension for an audience.

“This was a really exciting, fast paced workshop,” said one student. “I had never really thought about how I can use movement to extend my ideas on stage before.”
