(In)Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare from Forced Entertainment
From the United Kingdom
Tim Etchells + Forced Entertainment

Salt and pepper shakers for the king and queen. A ruler for the prince. A spoon stands in for a servant. Macbeth becomes a cheese grater. For over 30 years, UK-based theater pioneers Forced Entertainment have made formative works that search for identity in a fractured, uncertain world. With (In) Complete Works, taken from their marathon Complete Works project, Shakespeare’s plays are condensed and presented on top of a table using a cast of ordinary, everyday objects. “Shockingly brilliant” is how London’s The Guardian describes Forced Entertainment’s imaginative art, as one by one, members of the ensemble retell the plays, creating scaled-down worlds that are vivid, accessible and comic.
