Forced Entertainment Signal to Noise

In Forced Entertainment’s Signal to Noise the stage becomes a hallucinatory expanse across which lone figures drift, dance, run, spring and crawl, isolated but always joined in the connection of possible and impossible stories. There are dances and confrontations, chance encounters and drunken meanderings, moments of confusion, shared joy, stillness and delirium.

AI voices haunt a musical score of filmic atmospheres, slowed classical strings, beats, trumpets and birdsong, looping Etchells' text of thoughts, speeches, promises, and questions. And in a world that is neither day nor night, the performers become lip-syncers for the stories and emotions of these disembodied never-bodied speakers.

Created as the company celebrates its 40th birthday, Signal to Noise is a Forced Entertainment’s theatre at its best – a powerful mix of performance magic and off-hand deconstruction, a simple idea taken to its limit that opens a unique space for the thoughts, laughter and reflections of spectators.
