Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare / Kogutud teosed: lauapealne Shakespeare

FORCED ENTERTAINMENT (Sheffield)
“Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare”
September 5-10, 2017 Kanuti Gildi SAAL, Tallinn


A salt and pepper pot for the king and queen. A ruler for the prince. A spoon for the servant. Lighter fluid for the Innkeeper. A water bottle for the messenger.

One by one, over 6 days, Forced Entertainment performers condense every Shakespeare play ever written into a series of 36 intimate and lovingly made miniatures, played out on a one metre table-top using a collection of un-extraordinary everyday objects.

Forced Entertainment have long had an obsession with virtual or described performance, exploring in different ways over the years the possibilities of conjuring extraordinary scenes, images and narratives using language alone. In a brand new direction for the company, Complete Works explores the dynamic force of narrative in a simple and idiosyncratic summary of Shakespeare’s comedies, tragedies, histories and late plays, creating worlds as vivid as they are strange. 

Forced Entertainment are a group of 6 artists who have been making performance since 1984 – questioning, pushing and breaking theatre to see what can be built from the wreckage. Based in Sheffield, UK, their work has been seen all over the world.  2016 the company was a winner of the prestigious International Ibsen Award.
