Forced Entertainment Tabletop Shakespeare
Sunday 24 April 2016 to Sunday 15 May 2016
Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw

We would like to invite you for a special screening of the filmed performance of Forced Entertainment's Complete Works: Tabletop Shakespeare at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw.

A salt and pepper pot for the king and queen. A ruler for the prince. A spoon for the servant. Lighter fluid for the Innkeeper. A water bottle for the messenger…

In Complete Works six performers create condensed versions of every Shakespeare play ever written, comically and intimately retelling them using a collection of everyday unextraordinary objects on the one metre stage of a table top. Two parts of the original performance will be screened in Warsaw: tabletop Hamlet and tabletop Macbeth. Join us on 24 April from 12:00. Special cake and bubbly at 16:00.  

Additionally, the filmed performance will be shown until 15 May as part of the film programme of Objects do things exhibition in the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle. The UK artists taking part in the exhibition are : Gaye Chetwynd, Lindsay Seers. Tim Etchells, the artistic director of the Forced Entertainment worked on the dramaturgy of the exhibition.
