ALL IN/Performance/Theater

Since 2016 the British theatre collective Forced Entertainment brings the complete works of Shakespeare onto the stage and presented them to more than 35,0000 people., including Mousonturm in 2018. After having spent weeks separated by the recent lockdown, Forced Entertainment came up with the idea of replaying all the dramas once more as a nine-week online series using whatever was already in their own kitchens. Whether “Macbeth” (17.09.), “Romeo and Julia” (24.09.) or „King John“ (25.09.), all are performed with a full miniature cast in table top-format starring water bottle, razor blade and pillbox.
