Out of Order (Forced Entertainment)

There are red suits and smeared make up, locked smiles and glum faces.

On a bare stage under bright light a troupe of hapless clowns do their unlevel best to get along and pass the time. Carefully unbalanced between funny and not funny Out Of Order is the ruins of a show in the ruins of a world. Violence and posturing, high jinx and clown on clown comical capers give way to bickering, exhaustion, hunger, melancholy and silence. The clock ticks. The music swells to repeated climax.

A kind of poetic State of the Nation rendered as clown act gone wrong. Where we’re at and where we’re heading Out of Order says it all without speaking.
