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.

★★★★ – ‘Tim Etchells is surely a master of the late-night pub conversation. Give him a thought experiment and watch him go’

★★★★ – ‘An insightful script and detailed performance in this thoughtful new piece of work’

★★★★ – ‘To Move In Time is a collision of the human and superhuman. A piece of wondrous phrase-making that revels in the fragility of the unknown’

A Tim Etchells and Forced Entertainment Production, in collaboration with Tyrone Huggins. Co-commissioned by The Yard Theatre and supported by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre
