Forced Entertainment: To Move In Time
To Move in Time is a brand–new work written by Tim Etchells for performer 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. Impossible or extraordinary actions are developed and then abandoned through fantasies of changing the present via interventions in history. The protagonist obsesses with everyday events in the past, and dreams of becoming rich from knowledge of the future.
To Move in Time combines Etchells’ text with Huggins’ powerful performance to walk a line between comic absurdity and melancholia.
Forced Entertainment is a group of six artists who have worked together since 1984 to make compelling, inventive and provocative new theatre that has toured across the world. They have been described by The Guardian as having “produced some of the most exciting and challenging theatre of the past few decades”.
