“How do you make a theatre that’s radical in content and message and concerns, but where that’s also reflected in the form of the work, and in the kind of experience that it gives to the audience?”
Tim Etchell’s Sheffield-based troupe has spent three decades exploring what theatre could be, beyond a ‘well-made-play’. Tim discusses Forced Entertainment’s deconstructive relationship with narrative, its constantly drawing attention to the absurdity of the theatrical spectacle, and its chief performative influences of cabaret, stand-up, vaudeville and bad television.
