That Night Follows Day – Rehearsed Readings

Created 2018

Back to participation

Since 2011 Forced Entertainment have been using Artistic Director Tim Etchells’ text That Night Follows Day to create a series of public rehearsed readings, bringing this widely acclaimed work to UK and international partners, young participants and audiences. In this frame, a performance is created with 17 young people through a series of workshops and performed for an adult audience to explore the way that the adult world shapes the experience, understanding and possibilities that young people have.

We make these rehearsed reading projects in collaboration with a partner organisation, typically taking an intensive week or a longer period of evenings and weekends, both in the UK and internationally. So far these include; Sheffield Theatres (UK), Contact Manchester (UK), Hebbel Am Ufer, Berlin (Germany), Warwick Arts Centre (UK), Compass Festival, Leeds (UK), Institute of Asian Cultural Development, Gwangju (South Korea), Beijing Nanluoguxiang International Performing Arts Festival (China). Coming up in 2019 are presentations with ARK, Dublin (IRL) and Sirenos Festival, Vilnius (Lithuania).
