Verity Sharp with a Forced Entertainment mixtape

An exclusive mix from award-winning, Sheffield-based experimental theatre company Forced Entertainment. Plus music from Pierre Henry and David Behrman.

Concluding a week of Edinburgh Festivals-focused programming, award-winning experimental theatre company Forced Entertainment take over 30 minutes of airtime for an exclusive Late Junction Mixtape.

Led by artist, writer and spoken word performer Tim Etchells, Forced Entertainment is one of Britain's greatest ever theatre groups. Founded in Sheffield in 1984, they tour the world with a repertoire of groundbreaking pieces blending improvisation, durational performance, live art, video and digital media. In 2016 they were awarded the International Ibsen Award. Forced Entertainment's 'Real Magic' is playing at the Edinburgh International Festival between the 22nd and 27th of August.

Verity also features music from musique concrète pioneer Pierre Henry, who passed away last month aged 89, and composer David Behrman, who turns 80 next week.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
