Forced Entertainment: Real Magic
Thursday–Friday, January 25–26, 8 pm
$25 ($20 Walker members)
McGuire Theater

To the sound of looped applause and canned laughter, a group of performers attempts an impossible illusion—part mind-reading feat, part cabaret act, part chaotic game show. Real Magic creates a world of absurd disconnection, struggle, comical repetition, and acting virtuosity in which they endlessly revisit moments of defeat, hope, and anticipation. The Forced Entertainment collective, founded and directed by Tim Etchells, has long been the lauded and leading experimental theater company in the UK and one of the most influential in the world.
