The Coming Storm by Forced Entertainment at BAC
The Coming Storm by Forced Entertainment, at the Battersea Arts Centre (BAC), in south London, from 19 to 23 June 2012.
Press material says, "Employing devices from puppet theatre, song and naive dance, they tell an epic story that is resolutely too big for the stage. In a style as inventive as it is absurd, wrong-headed theatrical tricks take their place alongside an increasingly preposterous narrative, and for the first time in the Forced Entertainment’s work, live music. This darkly comic and haunting tale promises to explode audience expectations."
Cast includes Robin Arthur, Cathy Naden, Richard Lowdon, Claire Marshall, Terry O’Connor, Phil Hayes.
Directed by Tim Etchells, lighting by Nigel Edwards, sound by John Avery.
