Over our birthday year, we'll be connecting live and digital world wide audiences for hours at a time over some of our most memorable durational works.
Our next live stream will come from Hebbel-Am-Ufer, Berlin.
SPEAK BITTERNESS | 18 October | 5pm - 11pm GMT
Over 6 hours Speak Bitterness shows a group of penitents whose enormous task it is to confess to everything. They are by turns cowed, breezy, anguished, reluctant, jovial and of course determined. The text they work from lies somewhere between a mad catalogue of unlikely human infamy and the transcript perhaps of some strange and comical show-trial.
Speak Bitterness will be performed by the six core-members of Forced Entertainment including Artistic Director, Tim Etchells – a rare chance to see all six core members perform together. As with other durational work, the audience are free to come and go as they please.
Conceived and devised by Forced Entertainment | Performers Robin Arthur, Tim Etchells, Richard Lowdon, Claire Marshall, Cathy Naden & Terry O'Connor | Text Tim Etchells and the company | Direction Tim Etchells | Design Richard Lowdon | Soundtrack John Avery | Lighting Design Nigel Edwards

A story is told, made up live, dragged from memory by a line of seven performers dressed as Kings and Queens, wearing cheap red cloaks and cardboard crowns. It is a long, mutating and endlessly self-cancelling story. It is a story which somehow, in its many dips and turns, seems to include many — if not all — of the stories in the world.

12AM: Awake & Looking Down was streamed live from PACT Zollverein, Essen
In 12 am: Awake & Looking Down, five silent performers endlessly reinvent their identities using stacks of cardboard signs with which they name themselves, and a store of jumble-sale clothing (coats, dresses, suits, anoraks, trousers, pyjamas) from which they dress and re-dress.

“What is the capital city of Spain?
Why are people afraid to die? What is a tree?
Was John Wayne really brave?
Are you a natural blonde?”
Quizoola! is a durational performance based on a text of 2000 questions by Tim Etchells.
