Title:
Chronicles of the Indeterminate: Ordering Chaos in the Retrospectives of Forced Entertainment
Authors:
Gorman, Sarah
Abstract:
This paper compares two pieces of work created by Forced Entertainment to mark their tenth and twentieth anniversaries namely, A Decade of Forced Entertainment (1995) and Marathon Lexicon (2004/5). It comments in particular upon an apparent reluctance to engage with the notion of ‘theatre’ and ‘theatricality’ in the first performance lecture, and remarks upon a potential ‘return’ to theatre in the second durational piece. The essay posits a certain sedimentation of meaning with regards to definitions of ‘theatre’ and ‘performance’.
