    Abstract

    This dissertation aims to, through a postdramatic critical lens; explore the ways in which the British theatre company Forced Entertainment have achieved the construction of an iconic aesthetic. In exploring this subject, the study will aim to expose the postdramatic dramaturgies employed by the company within their performance dramaturgy and digital dramaturgy. By performing this analysis, I have found that there are a multitude of factors that have contributed to the generation of the Forced Entertainment iconic aesthetic; also this investigation has confirmed their work and aesthetic as postdramatic. The way in which these findings have been attained, is through the thorough analysis of the dramaturgical tropes that can be identified within the postdramatic performance dramaturgy and postdramatic digital dramaturgy of the company and their works. The investigation examines the following elements in both modes of dramaturgy: chaos, bricolage and audience reception; when considering the performance dramaturgy the element of performative presence is additionally explored; and finally the idea of liminality within the Forced Entertainment website is charted.
