In this new work Forced Entertainment - international innovators of contemporary theatre - 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; full of wrongheaded tricks, broken dances, sleazy drum interruptions and perfunctory piano accompaniment - featuring live music for the first time in the group\'s work. 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.
