Clowns in a fight; music, sweat and bright light. A troupe of hapless clowns rehearse old gags and get tangled in new ones.
They get trapped in a long-standing dispute, huddled at a table waiting for trouble to start. Like friends. Like politicians. Like a meeting that always collapses. A destruction that can’t be escaped. A conversation that can’t quite be had.
Southbank Centre Associate Company Forced Entertainment present the UK premiere of Out of Order.
Driven by a heavy musical score, Out Of Order teeters carelessly between funny and not funny at all, comical and absolutely tragic.
It is the ruins of a show in the ruins of a world. Things go quiet, melancholy, all out of breath. Where we’re at. Where we are heading.
