Katarzyna Tórz. Art that interrupts sleep. The order and ruins of the world in the theatre of Forced Entertainment.

Katarzyna Tórz's article opens a block of texts devoted to the group Forced Entertainment. The author presents the history of the British ensemble which has functioned with the same members for over thirty years. She also describes selected performances (i.a. 12 am. Awake and Looking Down, Quizoola!, Broadcast & Looping Piece, The Notebook), focusing on the trademark signs of the collective's originality. She points out that the actions of the group can be characterised by a feeling of distance and mistrust towards theatricality, which becomes revealed and thematised in the performances.
