Company: Forced Entertainment
International innovators Forced Entertainment present a compelling performance that imagines a multitude of hypothetical futures. Tomorrow’s Parties is a playful, poignant and at times delirious look forwards to futures both possible and impossible. From utopian and dystopian visions, science fiction scenarios, political nightmares and absurd fantasies, two performers compete to deliver a thought provoking survey of hopes, fears, surprises and inventions.
