about frantics dance company

Frantics is an experimental dance company that was created at the end of 2013 in Berlin.
The multicultural group got inspired for the name „Frantics“ by the Spanish word “Frenesí”, which by definition means “a violent exaltation of a feeling or a passion”.

They are influenced by b-boying, contemporary dance, acrobatics, experimental hip hop, martial arts and gaga. The darkness and beauty of Berlin was a turning point in the creativity of these five dancers. They went from competing as Bboys, to performing in theatres, where they realised the change it had provided them. It actually changed the way they work as well as their vision about the possibilities to reach the audience in a completely different way. Frantics is in a continuous study of movement, fusing improvisation techniques with energetic movements and dance theatre. Its aim is to create strong and shocking experiences for themselves as well as for the public.

In the past few years, some of the Frantics members worked with renowned artists and companies as Johannes Wieland Company, Sita Ostheimer from Hofesh Schechter, Lorca Renoux, De Dansers, Theater Strahl, Punchdrunk & Southpaw Dance Company.

 

Eva, Carlos and Diego have been teaching at motion*s weather regular classes or workshops. We are pleased an honored to have such active performers amoung our teachers.

Members

Marco di Nardo

Italy

He began his road in the bboy world in 2004 in Naples. After many years of hard work, he became part of “Dou-ble B Rockers Crew”, a legendary italian Breakdance crew. At the same time, he was touring with companies like Vittorio Toraldo, Laboratories Flegrei and Peppe Barra. He took part in many competitions and won numerous events around Europe. In Berlin, his life changed when he met the other members of Frantics. He finally got the opportunity to change and evolve from bboying to experimental dance, where he unifies his strong style with tricking, power moves and contemporary dance.

Juan Tirado

Spain

He started to dance bboying in 2004. Originally, he is from a small town with almost no dancers, which pushed him to start creating his own foundations. Always curious, he left his city early to explore the movement of great dancers around the world. He took part in several dance companies in Spain, Germany and Poland, and from that moment, dance became his life. He arrived to Berlin in 2013 where he co-founded Frantics with his other three colleagues, seeking new concepts, inspired by the city of techno.

Eva Georgitsopoulou

Greece

At the age of 6, Eva started practicing rhythmic gymnastics in Greece. She started dancing at the age of 14 and graduated from the National School of Dance (KSOT) in Athens and later graduated from the DanceWorkshop Gaaton in Israel. Eva trained in Classical Ballet, Contemporary, Martha Graham & GAGA techniques. Later on, she was awarded a scholarship by Rami Beer and Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company as an understudy for the company based in Israel in 2014. Eva is now based in Berlin where she is dancing and teaching. In January 2016, Eva joined the Frantics Dance Company.

Carlos Aller

Spain

His first contact with the world of dance was back in 2005. He grew up and traveled around Spain, participating in bboying competitions. As time passed by, he realised that it wasn’t only a hobby, it was also his
passion. After living in different cities of Spain, giving and taking workshops, he decided to move to Berlin, where he could explore different styles and develop his skills as a dancer. In 2014, he completed a contemporary intensive program in TanzFabrik and since then, day by day, Berlin continues to inspire him, helping him improve his style. In his
everyday research with Frantics, he adds those different influences.

Diego de la Rosa

Spain

His first contact with dance was in the streets of Valladolid in 2005. During his first years of dance, Diego traveled around Spain and Europe, attending numerous events and championships of Urban Dance. In 2012, he decided to move to Berlin where he started a new chapter of his life and co-founded the company Frantics. He currently is a dancer and choreographer of the company. In 2014, Diego started an intensive program of Contemporary and Classical Dance at ”Tanzfabrik” where he was able to develop his skills as a dancer. To complement his dance, he added to his formation some theatre, improvisation, release techniques, acrobatics and martial arts.
