‘One of the most influential new British theatre companies of the last 20 years.’ -- The Guardian
Spectacular is an extraordinary new performance from Forced Entertainment adding to their unique and remarkable body of work and following recent acclaimed shows, The World in Pictures, Exquisite Pain and Bloody Mess.
A lone performer takes to the stage, explaining that the show we’re watching is somehow different tonight. The atmosphere is different, his entrance was off, the lights are wrong, some scenery is missing, some performers are absent. The tone is all wrong. Things are somehow falling to pieces, or maybe things are just now falling into place. The audience reaction, our protagonist says, is not quite what he expected, not quite what he's used to. Perhaps the fact he is dressed as a skeleton has something to do with it.
Intimate and comical, Forced Entertainment's Spectacular slowly and seductively winds the audience into the world of a missing performance. Our skeleton host seems relaxed about it, cracking jokes, staying chatty and amiable. But still something's wrong. The fact that the next performer who comes on-stage is caught up in some long, melodramatic and agonised death scene may also explain the shift in tone.
Spectacular is about the now of the performance moment, the trembling edge of laughter, possibility and invention. It's about death and playing dead, about the strange contact between two performers on-stage and an audience caught between what they are watching and what they are being told.
Simple, logical, absurd, impossible and humorous by turns, Spectacular is Forced Entertainment's provocative and playful new work.
