In this the second world premiere of the season at PACT Zollverein, Forced Entertainment, the global forerunners of experimental theatre, try to tell something like a ghost story that is resolutely too big for the stage.Using elements of naïve dance, live music (for the first time) and clumsy theatrical tricks reminiscent of amateur dramatics and puppet theatre, the seven performers desperately attempt to illustrate this dark and haunting tale.
