This year's METEOR presents this marathon through Shakespeare's complete works.
Table Top Shakespeare is a heretical approach to one of literature's greatest poets. The performers present short versions of every single play he ever wrote. The characters are represented by everyday objects such as salt- and pepper shakers or a matchbox. They come to life on a table top where the performers recount Shakespeare's stories for the duration of 45 minutes.
Forced Entertainment's condensed storytelling appeals to our imagination. One critic famously wrote after the London premiere that she could see a jar of marmalade blushing.
Forced Entertainment received the Ibsen Award in 2016. This was the first time the award was given to a theatre company and not a playwright. BIT Teatergarasjen has loved their work ever since presenting them for the first time in 1998. After nearly 20 years, they have chosen to take on Shakespeare. This is definitely something to look forward to!
