Tim Etchells & Forced Entertainment: To Move In Time

Date:Wed 27 Feb
Time:7.30pm
Venue:J2
Price:£12.50 (£8 con)

To Move in Time is a monologue written by Tim Etchells for performer Tyrone Huggins, in which an unnamed protagonist speculates playfully and poignantly about what he’d do if he were able to travel backwards and forwards in time.

From fantasies of changing the present via interventions in history, to obsessions with everyday events in the past, to dreaming up ways to get rich from knowledge of the future, the text is an unfolding thought process in which fantasies of impossible or extraordinary action are developed and then abandoned.

An obsessive stream of consciousness, tangled and contradictory, the work combines Etchells’ text with Huggins powerful performance to walk a line between comic absurdity and melancholia.

A post-show Q&A will follow this performance.

Etchells' script is a masterpiece of precise observation and perfectly crafted musicality, moving subtly through love, amusement, anger, frustration and joy.
