Forced Entertainment
Emanuelle Enchanted
‘In the summer when the rain stopped it rained for five months and then a silence fell like we’d woken in silence from a dream..’ For the first time in eight years Forced Entertainment is touring its seminal performance, Emanuelle Enchanted. On its stark wooden stage backed with a curtain of electric stars, five misfits remember how the whole world changed and how they somehow lived to tell the tale. It is a milestone in the development of Forced Entertainment’s work – a portrait of the world gripped by a strange night crisis, at once personal, political and magical. From a chaotic TV newsroom through a swirling choreography of plywood walls, to a vast crowd spelled out using cardboard signs and a store of jumble sale clothes, Emanuelle Enchanted shows Forced Entertainment at its exuberant and challenging best. ‘Touching and very funny’ The Times
