Show / Concert
Spectacular28 - 31 May 2008
The event is over
A twisted love story, speculations about current events, hints of a bizarre cabaret, conferences about tragedy, droll dances and predictions. That, in a nutshell, is what Spectacular, British company Forced Entertainment's latest creation, is all about. And it's entertaining, deconstructive and explosive!
A lone performer takes to the stage, explaining that the show we're watching is somehow different tonight. The atmosphere is different, his entrance was off, the lights are wrong, some scenery is missing, some performers are absent. The tone is all wrong. Things are somehow falling to pieces, or maybe things are just now falling into place. The audience reaction, our protagonist says, is not quite what he expected, not quite what he's used to. Perhaps the fact he is dressed as a skeleton has something to do with it.
