Frantic Assembly, 2011
Ignition is Frantic Assembly's free, national training programme for young men aged 16-20.
The programme seeks out talent in unexpected places, from sports groups to youth centres and is committed to helping young men find their individual and collective strength. We want to bring together a dynamic group from across the UK with different backgrounds, skills and stories.
12 of the brightest and bravest young men are selected to form the Ignition Company. We bring them to London to live and work together for 7 days to create an original performance with Frantic Assembly Directors.
60 Hugs looked at masculinity and fragility, the emotions we feel or feel we are allowed to express within society.
