Ignition is Frantic Assembly’s flagship training programme for young men, aged 16-20. Through free Taster and Trial workshops across the UK, from Edinburgh to Plymouth, 12 of the bravest and brightest are selected to form the Frantic Ignition Company.
Devised by Frantic Assembly’s Artistic Director, Scott Graham, this performance is the culmination of a 5-day residency at Stratford Circus Arts Centre. Working as a company with Frantic Assembly, the young people will create a new piece of exhilarating, risk-taking and energetic theatre that harnesses their voices, energy and commitment.
Frantic Assembly work with 9 arts partners across the UK to ensure Ignition reaches young men with little or no access to theatre.
This year’s Ignition is linked to Frantic Assembly’s Autumn touring production, The Unreturning and will also be performed on the 26th October at the Imperial War Museum, London.
