Forced Enterteinment

Tomorrow’s parties (italian version)

Tomorrow’s parties (italian version)

Founded and led by Tim Etchells, the historic Forced Enterteinment company has gained attention for its extraordinary work on contemporary British drama. Among its most acclaimed plays is certainly Tomorrow’s Parties, a snapshot of the hopes and fears of an entire era. This is perhaps why, more than a decade after the play’s debut, Roberto Castello and Robin Arthur (among the company members) with the production of ALDES decided to translate and remount it (for the first time, not in the original language) to make it accessible to Italian audiences as well without the obstacle of subtitles.

A woman and a man, in a space framed only by a festoon of colored light bulbs, play at making hypotheses, from the most likely to the most paradoxical, about the future that awaits humankind. The mechanism, simple as it is, soon unleashes a firework of lucid, disenchanted, intimate, profound, and at times bitter, introspection.

Taking turns on stage to embody the Italian adaptation of the play are some of the best performers on our scene: Marco Cavalcoli or Roberto Rustioni with Caterina Simonelli or Deniz Ozdogan.
