After holding the UK premiere here in June, Forced Entertainment bring their highly successful show back to Battersea Arts Centre
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. Under the artistic direction of Tim Etchells The Coming Storm is Forced Entertainment at its best -- trademark black humour, a collage of arresting images and an anarchic performance style.
