Out Of Order by Forced Entertainment

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.

Out Of Order says it all without speaking.
