19 – 23 June. At Battersea Arts Centre. Part of LIFT Festival
Employing devices from puppet theatre, song and naive dance, Forced Entertainment tell an epic story that (they say) is resolutely too big for the stage. In a style as inventive as it is absurd, wrong-headed theatrical tricks take their place alongside an increasingly preposterous narrative, and for the first time in the Forced Entertainment’s work, live music. This darkly comic and haunting tale promises to explode audience expectations.
