Presented at Lyceum
Running time: Apprix. 1 hour and 40 minutes. There will be no interval during this performance.
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. The Coming Storm is
Forced Entertainment at its best – trademark black humour, a collage of arresting images and an anarchic performance style.
The Coming Storm is co–produced by PACT Zollverein, Essen;
Festival Avignon; Theaterhaus Gessneralle, Zurich; Tanzquartier,
Vienna; Les Spectacles Vivants – Centre Pompidou, Paris;
Festival d’Automne à Paris; LIFT, London; Battersea Arts Centre,
London; Sheffield City Council.
