This town is falling apart.
Welcome to Portsford, a seaside town fighting a losing battle with coastal erosion. When a sudden announcement threatens to tear the community apart, in an attempt to raise spirits, everyone comes together for a night of drinking and dancing. But as the party becomes a pressure cooker, difficult conversations surrounding shared loss of home, and collective and individual responsibility rise to the surface. But wouldn't you rather just dance the night away?
Devised and performed by the company, FREAK OUT! is inspired by the UK’s disappearing coastline and draws from our research into affected communities in East Anglia. It draws attention to how climate change will affect those on the periphery of society who are often overlooked, and ultimately what we owe to each other as a community in times of crisis.
FREAK OUT! experiments with theatrical styles and genres, blending clowning, movement, live art and multimedia with an issue-led narrative into an offbeat, high-energy cocktail of a show. Enjoy it while it lasts, because things are about to get messy... literally.
