Forced Entertainment: Tomorrow’s Parties

Friday 25 October 2013 to Saturday 26 October 2013, 17:30 to 18:50

International innovators Forced Entertainment’s latest performance imagines a multitude of hypothetical futures.

With: Forced Entertainment

Two performers wreathed in coloured lights, like a strange fairground attraction, speculate about what tomorrow might bring. Exploring utopian and dystopian visions, science fiction scenarios, political nightmares and absurd fantasies, the audience is carried along on a flowing tide of conjectures, possibilities and dreams. Sometimes collaborative, sometimes competitive the two performers enjoy the pleasure of invention as their ideas take them in different directions. Tomorrow's Parties is Forced Entertainment in intimate and comical mode - a playful, poignant and at times delirious look forwards to futures both possible and impossible.

Since forming the company in 1984, the six core members of Forced Entertainment have sustained a unique artistic partnership for over quarter of a century, confirming their position as trailblazers in contemporary theatre. Forced Entertainment's trademark collaborative devising process has made them pioneers of British avant-garde theatre and earned them an international reputation.

"Forced Entertainment has been pulling the rug from under theatregoers' feet for 20 years...they're not about to stop confounding conventions or exploding audience expectations." The Times
