    Abstract

    This dissertation illustrates Forced Entertainment's dramaturgy for evidently paralleling persistent tropes that construct Postmodernist Performance' through a critical Postmodern lens. This study proposes a localised discourse, suggesting through an expository and critical manner, that the company's Postmodernist dramaturgies, perform Postmodern culture. Through assembling a genealogy of Postmodernism and Performance, grants my study to contextualise Forced Entertainment's works for corresponding with the manifestation of a performance Phenomenon; Postmodernism. Mapping the paradigms from which the company's methodologies, ethics, distinctive performance dramaturgy and strategies emerge out from, establishes an epistemic grounding of Forced Entertainment's location among the paradigm shift in Postmodernism. This dissertation identifies Postmodernist traits within their dramaturgies and explores the ontology of their works, evidencing the ways their dramaturgy appropriates interdisciplinary ruptures the exemplify the radicalising paradigm shift in Postmodernism. The dissertation investigates and analyses the implications of Forced Entertainment's dramaturgies that can be recognised as a cultural performance, acknowledging their performance practice as an evident response to Postmodernity. In turn, through a Postmodern lens, suggesting that the company's dramaturgies, in fact perform the paradigm shift in Postmodernism.
