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 kinds of dances and develop his skills as a dancer. Day by day, Berlin inspires him and helps him improve his style, adding different influences of dances, which he adds to his everyday research with Frantics.
At the age of 6, Eva started practicing rhythmic gymnastics in Greece, where she trained during 8 years for championships. She started dancing at the age of 14 and graduated from the National School of Dance (KSOT) in Athens in 2013 and later graduated from the DanceWorkshop Gaaton in Israel in 2014. Eva trained in Classical Ballet, Contemporary, Martha Graham & Gaga techniques. Eva is now based in Berlin where she is dancing and teaching. She has been researching her own way of expression and developing her creativity through working with different artists.
He started to dance bboying in 2004. Originally, he is from a small town in Spain where there are almost no dancers, which pushed him to start creating his own foundations. Always curious, he left early his city to explore the movement of great dancers around the world. He also 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 created Frantics with his other three colleagues, seeking new concepts, inspired by the city of techno.
MARCO DI NARDO
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 also 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.
DIEGO DE LA ROSA
Diego de la Rosa started dancing bboying/breakdance in 2005 on the streets of Valladolid, Spain. He spent his first years traveling around Spain & Europe, attending urban dance events & championships such as Battle of the Year, Floor Wars and IBE. In 2012, he decided to move to Berlin where he did a contemporary dance formation. In 2013 he co-founded “Frantics Dance Company” where he is a dancer & choreographer. Since 2014, he has been collaborating in several projects between Spain & Germany. Over the years he has been accumulating teaching experience in professional and advanced contemporary training in places like Marameo in Berlin, Staatstheater in Kassel, and NunArt in Barcelona.
Young-won started her daily dance training at Chungnam Art High school in South Korea in 2009 and in 2011 she continued her education at SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance) in Austria. During her study at SEAD, she participated in an exchange program with Tisch School of the Arts/NYU in 2014. After that she joined SEAD’s Bodhi Project in the 2015/2016 company year which she toured internationally with. She worked with choreographers such as Etienne Guilloteau, Jukstapoz (Christine Gouzelis and Paul Blackman), Sita Ostheimer, Mark Lorimer and Eldad Ben Sasson. In October 2016 she became a member of Frantics Dance Company.
This experimental dance company 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 bboying, 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 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.
