After the performance on Thu 14 Oct we will be joined by Forced Entertainment’s Artistic Director Tim Etchells for a post-show discussion.
★★★★ “Forced Entertainment’s deconstructed clowning routine is a challenging absurdist response to troubled times.” – The Stage
Out of Order says it all without speaking, dysfunctional and disjointed, switching between moments of stillness and chaos. Six clowns have forgotten their routine but are bound to try to do it anyway. Hilarity ensues, chairs scatter and a table topples over. Music, fights and fierce lights. Blank faces, double takes and bright ideas. After a successful run at the Southbank London, the world renowned Forced Entertainment return to HOME in this symphony of explosive disorder, reflecting the messy world we currently live in.
Out Of Order is a Forced Entertainment production. Co-produced by Künstlerhaus Mousonturm supported within the framework of the Alliance of International Production Houses by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media of Germany and Schauspiel Frankfurt, PACT Zollverein Essen, HAU Hebbel am Ufer Berlin and Gessnerallee Zurich.
★★★★ “Sweaty, sad and stupidly funny.” – The Guardian
★★★★ “Wry, melancholic… Director Tim Etchells orchestrates the chaos with restrained finesse… Evocatively reflects the alienating absurdity all around us.” – The Stage
“Poignant chaos.” – Exeunt
Far more than its constituent parts… A largely compelling political allegory… An astute and sophisticated clown show.” – London Theatre1.Com
“Forced Entertainment deal beautifully with the nonsense of life.” Süddeutscher Zeitung
