Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare

Performance

The complete works of Shakespeare, all 36 dramas, in nine days. Isn’t there someone getting above themselves? The six performers of the British theatre group Forced Entertainment need very little for it: a table, a collection of everyday items, their voices and about 45 minutes for each work. Whether ‘Hamlet‘, ‘Macbeth‘, or ‘Romeo and Juliet‘, each play is given with a full cast, shrunk to 36 miniatures in table format, with salt cellars for kings and aerosol cans as servants on a table.

With Complete Works, Forced Entertainment have produced a masterpiece that focuses on pure narration – captivating, witty, pointedly exaggerated and moving. The audience is taken into a world full of childlike playfulness by speaking cups, mustard jars or nail-varnish remover. Like puppeteers, the performers lovingly breathe life into their objects to guide their viewers into the diverse parts of Shakespeare’s universe.

Tim Etchells, artistic director of Forced Entertainment, who delighted at the KunstFestSpiele 2018 with the light and sound installation ‘Best of All/What Can‘, and his performers achieved an acclaimed revitalisation of Shakespeare’s works, both well known and less familiar, which can be experienced as a marathon project or in selected single events.

For the Complete Works the KunstFestSpiele are for the first time guests of the Kulturzentrum FAUST. For festival visitors a shuttle from Herrenhausen to the venue and back is planned (information at www.kunstfestspiele.de).

By and with Robin Arthur, Jerry Killick, Richard Lowdon, Claire Marshall, Cathy Naden and Terry O’Connor
