Sheffield has a long history and rich tradition of producing some of the best theatre in the UK.
Home to the Sheffield Theatres complex, acclaimed experimental theatre company Forced Entertainment, progressive collective Third Angel, and leading Black British theatre company Eclipse to name a few, theatre and performance artists from Sheffield have been making waves in the national and international theatre landscape for decades.
Sheffield-based touring theatre company Forced Entertainment have been performing their work throughout the UK and across the world since 1984. The company comprises a group of six performers who have been working together to push the boundaries of the theatrical form since the company’s inception, led by Artistic Director Tim Etchells.
Attracting international critical acclaim for their innovative and often challenging and provocative works, Forced Entertainment are one of the most highly-regarded British theatre companies in the world. Their disruptive, nonconformist approach to theatre making has helped pave the way for some of the most exciting and experimental developments in the recent history of British and international theatre practice.
