“It really helps build the awareness of the potential of the performer – it helps introduce them to a whole physical language, but it also builds a company. These warm ups are about building strength, but they’re also about building confidence and connection.”

Scott Graham describes the typical elements and intentions that make up a Frantic Assembly warm-up. He explores why considered physicality is invaluable in playing subtext and drawing an audience into a piece, and describes how engaging actors in his chorographical process allows them to become hyper-aware of their power to tell stories, beyond their textual delivery.
