Forced Entertainment Ltd

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 body 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.
