Front Row Theatre, exists to bring high end performance art, in English, to southern Sweden, in both public and educational environments. We like to bring talented people together to create great theatre!
We understand the importance of a dynamic and visually intriguing performance. Use of the full depth and breadth of an acting area is central to our visual philosophy, creating visceral experience to compliment dialogue in a potentially second language setting.
Not afraid to challenge some of society’s norms, our plays have been characterised by reflections on status within the complex realms of class, gender and age. Power dynamics are often underlying themes in our work.
Cornerstones of our success is the belief that theatre should be accessible to everyone and a demand for high standards.
Recent outings have seen Fraser act in a one-man A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, new play Bothwell, written by himself, Iphigenia at Olympus by Ajius, and a role in Lasse Hallström's new film Hilma. He has directed Anton Chekhov's The Boor, Ira Levin's Deathtrap and Anthony Shaffer's Sleuth, as well as make star turns in The Pavilion by Craig Wright and Eric Bogosian's Suburbia, directed by Kasper Sejersen.
Fraser developed an interest in theatre early on in life, studying the theories of the art both at school and university as well as throwing himself into the emotionally challenging world of acting itself.
However, it wasn’t really until a reflective period post-thirty that Fraser truly started to develop himself as an all-round practitioner. A more relaxed attitude to acting, coupled with a little more life-experience, helped unlock more expressive and polished performances.
Rubbing shoulders with educated and experienced actors and directors began to have a lot of positive influence on Fraser and also helped him identify his own style. Fraser has since built Front Row Theatre, played leading roles on stage, experienced treading the boards at the Malmö Opera and increased his in front of camera portfolio both artistically and commercially. He is also a fully trained drama pedagogue and he has built experience as an acting coach.
