Under bright light a troupe of hapless clowns try to get along and pass the time. Carefully unbalanced between funny and not funny, it presents the ruins of a show in the ruins of a world. Old music plays on loop - the wrong kind, but no one seems to mind. Rehearsing old gags and getting tangled in new ones, the clowns fight and chase in eruptions of uneasy mayhem. Violence and posturing, high jinks and clown-on-clown comical capers give way to bickering, exhaustion, hunger, melancholy and silence. The clock ticks. The music swells to repeated climax. Highly regarded for pushing the boundaries of what theatre can be, Forced Entertainment reimagine the circus clown in six figures set swirling on the stage. Southbank Centre Associate Company Forced Entertainment present the UK premiere of their new group piece Out of Order.
