WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Forced Entertainment is a group of six artists formed in 1984 and led by director and writer Tim Etchells. The Company continually develop new performance and theatre forms to find the most effective articulation of its ideas, to make work that is engaging, challenging and surprising, exploring the possibilities of what theatre might be.
International innovators Forced Entertainment's latest performance imagines a multitude of hypothetical futures. 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 suppositions 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.
