PanicLab is a performing arts company, founded by producer Clara Giraud and performance maker Joseph Mercier in 2008, to produce and create the projects they are working on with a regular company of collaborators.
The company produces performance in the fields of contemporary dance, theatre and performance, often using the personal as a starting point. As a group, PanicLab is passionate about performance that is raw, honest, extraordinary and humble. The work the company makes is political, personal, serious yet with a good dose of humour. It is highly visual and physical. It often challenges perspectives, while being accessible to a wide audience, and unpretentious. It is always devised and necessarily collaborative.
