The Coming Storm: Forced Entertainment
In this new work international innovators Forced Entertainment tangle and cross-cut multiple stories to make a compelling and unstable performance. From love and death to sex and laundry, from shipwrecks to falling snow, personal anecdotes rub shoulders with imaginary movies, and half-remembered novels bump into distorted fairytales.
Using a method as inventive as it is absurd, six performers create, collaborate, ambush and disrupt this epic saga that is resolutely too big for the stage. The result is comical, contradictory and poignant; full of wrongheaded tricks, broken dances, sleazy drum interruptions and perfunctory piano accompaniment. Everything builds and everything shimmers. Everything teeters and everything trembles. Everything is reshaped and everything is cannibalised.
The Coming Storm is Forced Entertainment at its best - trademark black humour, a collage of arresting images and an anarchic performance style.
One of Britain's foremost experimental theatre companies, producing stimulating, challenging and provocative work which creates exciting encounters with audiences. The company consists of a core group of six artists lead by Artistic Director Tim Etchells. Over the past 24 years they have worked alone and with a variety of collaborators from the worlds of dance, visual art, music and theatre to create a body of work which has earned them an international reputation.
