Congratulations to Forced Entertainment! The European forerunners of experimental theatre are the recipients of the International Ibsen Award 2016.
Tim Etchells, artistic director of Forced Entertainment, writes: „We feel that giving this award to Forced Entertainment recognises a whole area of contemporary practice away from the literary mainstream; an area of experiment and work across art forms that has consistently championed experimental approaches to performance, from group work to devising and improvisation."

The award was established by the Norwegian Government in 2007 and has previously been awarded to Peter Handke (2014), Heiner Goebbels (2012), Jon Fosse (2009), Ariane Mnouchkine (2008) and Peter Brook (2008).
We’re delighted to announce that Forced Entertainment will play their first international dates as the announced recipient of the award here at PACT. Tickets are available here as of now for the world premiere of their latest work “Real Magic” on the 4th of May. More info
