“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 Coin Toss Collective, this ACE-funded show is inspired by the UK’s disappearing coastline. It draws from research into British seaside communities threatened by coastal erosion, and stimulates conversations around activism, climate anxiety and climate justice. ‘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.

“Celebrates the coast’s beauty and laments its loss… it’s surprisingly and suddenly hilarious with an undertone of impending doom and exceptionally ingenious flair” ★★★★★ Broadway World

"A poetically playful and creatively choreographed moment for reflection and call to action" ★★★★ Fringe Biscuit
