Terry O’Connor

Terry has been a core member of Forced Entertainment sine 1986, performing in most shows since.

She has led many performance residencies, taught Acting for Film at The Northern Media School and has acted in many short films.

‘Risk and vulnerability lie at the heart of Forced Entertainment’s interest in making performance. The last twenty years have seen us creating different strategic approaches to the whole business of standing in front of an audience, foregrounding the unique intimacy that takes place between the performer and watcher, and the charge of culpability and exposure that inevitably follows on.’

This weekend will aim to challenge your preconceptions about physical and imaginative risk, pushing at chances that are small-scale, humble and unexpected, inviting participants to extend the language of their own performance, and leading us all to territories we cannot determine.
