Fast, Sweaty, Dare I Say…Frantic?

This show, created, rehearsed, teched and presented in 5 days started with 16 strangers from all around the world meeting in London. A fast, sweaty and physical immersion into the Frantic Assembly method of devising – we didn’t even know what we were making until the start of day 3; a show about story threads, both narrative and physical, providing direction, knots, tension, at times a woven fabric, at times a webby mess. A full fast tech, then lights up in London.

Production History

Threads, an original devised piece was presented at The Rose Theatre at Rose Bruford College as part of Frantic Assembly’s International Summer Theatre School.
