Forced Entertainment

The Coming Storm


    • Centre Pompidou
      October 18 to October 21

    The actors collective Forced Entertainment displays a radical taste for appropriation and parody. After The Thrill of It All in 2010, The Coming Storm probes the mechanisms of storytelling, combining “amateur theater, ‘naïve’ dance and an epic tone”.
