Frantic Assembly, who have been making waves for 21 years, are opening a production footage archive at the British Library, an event which will be marked by a panel discussion in the library’s Eliot Room on Tuesday 10 November at 5.45pm. The discussion will be led by Artistic Director Scott Graham and Mark Evans, Associate Dean at Coventry University.
Cited as ‘the most innovative and progressive theatre company around’ by The Times, Frantic Assembly was founded by Graham in 1994 with Vicki Middleton and Steven Hoggett, and has been winning awards and creating new foundations for theatre-makers ever since. The company is currently studied across exam boards such as AQA and Edexcel as leading contemporary theatre practitioners.
The launch of the archives will be a testament to the international success of the company, which has toured 30 different countries worldwide and regularly sells out at the Fringe. The event will comprise a two-part conversation featuring artistic and academic guests, and will be aimed at teachers, academics, educationalists, theatre enthusiasts and students.
Following the discussion will be a Q&A and complimentary refreshments. Further information and booking can be found at http://www.bl.uk/events/frantic-assembly-devising-and-physicality-in-theatre
