Live Stream: Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare (25 June – 4 July)

 Experimental theatre company Forced Entertainment have announced details of their next live stream event, Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare. 

One by one, over nine days at the Foreign Affairs Festival, Berlin, Forced Entertainment performers will create condensed versions of Shakespeare’s complete canon, comically and intimately retelling all 36 plays using a collection of everyday unextraordinary objects as stand-ins for characters, staged on a one metre tabletop. Each play will be live streamed via; four plays every evening, from 25 June through to 4 July.

Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare will explore the dynamic force of narrative in a simple and idiosyncratic summary of Shakespeare’s comedies, tragedies, histories and late plays, creating worlds as vivid as they are strange.

Throughout the streams, audiences are invited to comment and interact using the hashtag #completeworks. The company can be found on Twitter @ForcedEnts
