The pioneers of European experimental theatre and Ibsen Award winning group, Forced Entertainment return to PACT for their latest work ›Under Bright Light‹, which sees six performers caught in a set of fragmentary actions, interactions, texts and dances, apparently disconnected but nonetheless accumulating, linking and amplifying each other in different ways.

Conjuring images of accident, tension and instability the work as a whole summons a volatile and unforgiving world in which equilibrium is hard to find. The bright light of the title is a stark frame for dispassionate scrutiny, and, at the same time, a warmer invitation which invokes the theatrical gaze. The six figures onstage – inventive, resourceful and endlessly under pressure – compete to find solutions to unexpected problems, balancing and manipulating objects, adopting disguises and proclaiming improvised manifestos all the while struggling in a stage world that they cannot fully control. ›Under Bright Light‹ promises to be a comical and unsettling successor to the group’s acclaimed recent works ›Real Magic‹ and ›Out of Order‹.
