Frantic Assembly The group Frantic Assembly was founded by Scott Graham, Steven Hoggett and Vicki Middleton. They were heavily influenced by DV8. They adapt scripts into physical theatre pieces, for example, Othello, but also create their own pieces, for example, the bed scene which was create as part of their Ignition programme. Their performances tell stories.
The non-naturalistic, symbolic boxes with hard lines create an atmosphere of containment. The eye is immediately drawn to the actors' upper half of body. The large proportion of the boxes make their contents (actors) appear smaller.
