Love, freedom, blood, sweat and rain-storms: Frantic is an explosive and moving exploration of our relentless devotion to busyness.

Acrobatics and dance-theatre choreographed around a bespoke structure, Frantic uses a rich physical language to pull apart it’s subject – the reality of a running mind and one man’s thirst for escape.

Working at the meeting point between dynamic physicality and rich visual design, Frantic is Acrojou’s second outdoor show and the directorial debut of company co-founder Jeni Barnard.

Combining acrobatics, bespoke structures and rich visual design, Acrojou create inspirational contemporary circus performances for events worldwide. The company is driven by a passion for communicating through the vibrancy and emotive impact of physical storytelling.

Jeni Barnard is a director, designer and performer, and co-founder of Acrojou alongside longtime creative collaborator, Barney White. Barney is a physical performer trained in acrobatics, dance, martial arts and choreography. Jeni and Barney trained and met on London’s ‘Circus Space’ BA Degree. Dancer and aerialist Myrto Petrohilou is the newest company member and a graduate of The Circus Space and Rallou Manou Dance School.
