Forced Entertainment's 'The Coming Storm' at BAC

This coming Friday, the 23rd November, see's a special double-bill of Forced Entertainment and Tim Etchell's work take over Battersea Arts Centre, as the venue stages both performances and fills itself with their neon signs, music, and some jazzy cocktails that you're sure to never have tried before. We'll certainly be heading along, and letting you know exactly what we thought, but figured you might be keen to get some tickets too. 

Forced Entertainment
Since forming the company in 1984, the six core members of Forced Entertainment have sustained a unique artistic partnership for quarter of a century, confirming their position as trailblazers in contemporary theatre. The company’s substantial canon of work reflects an interest in the mechanics of performance, the role of the audience and the machinations of contemporary urban life. The work – framed and focused by Artistic Director Tim Etchells - is distinctive and provocative, delighting in disrupting the conventions of theatre and the expectations of audiences. Forced Entertainment’s trademark collaborative process – devising work as a group through improvisation, experimentation and debate – has made them pioneers of British avant-garde theatre and earned them an international reputation.

Forced Entertainment is regularly funded by Arts Council England.

Tim Etchells
Artist, director and writer Tim Etchells is Artistic Director of Forced Entertainment. Alongside his work with the group since 1984, Tim has collaborated with a wide range of other artists, choreographers and writers and has created original works in diverse media from performance to video to installation and works on paper. He has also developed a unique voice in writing fiction and in writing for and about performance (Certain Fragments, Routledge 1999). His first novel - The Broken World – came out in paperback in autumn 2009. Tim is currently Professor of Performance at the University of Sheffield. 

After touring Europe and appearing in various international festivals, Forced Entertainment are back in the UK and their visit to the BAC finishes off their tour, running up until 1 December 2012.
