Frantic Assembly presents a season of four new works devised in collaboration with the LSBU Student Theatre Company. Vivid and dynamic, Frantic Assembly’s unique physical style combines movement, design, music and text. In addition to its productions Frantic Assembly operates an extensive Learn & Train programme introducing thousands of participants each year to the company’s process of creating theatre. The company attracts new and young audiences with work that reflects contemporary culture.

Frantic Assembly are thrilled to be continuing their close working relationship with students at London South Bank University. This autumn, all Acting and Performance students will work with members of Frantic Assembly in a series of three original performances, each created over five days during an intensive, creative residency.

We don’t know what the pieces will be about yet, as we haven’t started making them, but you can be sure to see some thrilling, energetic and unforgettable theatre!
Each residency will be directed by two Frantic Assembly practitioners.
