Theatre

To Move in Time

Date: Friday, Feb 21 - Saturday, Feb 22
Venue: Arnolfini

Tim Etchells and Forced Entertainment production, in collaboration with performer Tyrone Huggins (Black Men Walking, Opening Skinner’s Box), on a short UK tour.

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

From fantasies of changing the present, 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, compulsive thought process.

In the end though, far from the science fiction of time travel it is ostensibly working with, To Move In Time concerns itself with questions of value and priority – what matters, what needs to be cared for and what can be changed.

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.

Feb 21 & 22, Arnolfini, 7.30pm, £12/£10. For more info, visit arnolfini.org.uk/whatson/performance-to-move-in-time
