About How The Time Goes

Emerging from the delirious limbo of lockdown it features Forced Entertainment in improvised Zoom-interactions with the pianist Marino Formenti, from separate locations including Sheffield, Berlin, rural France, London, Vienna and Budapest.

There are disputes about Quiz answers and talk about the weather and funerals. Someone cooks, another takes a bath. Someone else tries to explain the costumes in a Chekhov play. Times passes in loops. Piano music plays,the same tune again and then again.

Conceived and devised by the company.
