We are the King of Ventilators is produced by Forced Entertainment

We are the King of Ventilators (Delirium Loop) is a compelling and prescient live streamed performance by Jim Fletcher, directed by Tim Etchells, with text by Chris Thorpe. The work takes a phrase about US ventilator production repeated by US President Donald Trump during the coronavirus epidemic, and places it in sharp counterpoint with original material to create a comical and unsettling reflection on power, mortality and delusion. In this second phase of the project Etchells and Fletcher experiment with repetition and music, in the process spinning Thorpe’s text into multiple contradictory versions — sometimes bombastic and rhetorical, sometimes intimate, sometimes unstable and decayed.
