FORCED ENTERTAINMENT: VOID STORY
THURSDAY 24 NOVEMBER 7.30pm
Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield
Tickets: £12 / concessions £10
A beleaguered pair of protagonists on a rollercoaster ride through the decimated remains of contemporary culture. Navigating one terrible cityscape after another, mugged, shot at and bitten by insects, pursued through subterranean tunnel systems, Forced Entertainment perform this bleak and comical contemporary fable.
Vividly performed as if it were a radio play, sitting at tables, turning the pages of the script, ‘doing’ the requisite voices and adding in sound effects for gunshots, rain and bad phone-lines. Simultaneously the stage is dominated by a series of projected images, a storyboard for an impossible movie-version of Tim Etchells’ unsettling text.
Somewhere between these images, live dialogue and recorded sound effects is where VOID STORY actually takes place.
