Description

Imagine you can travel through time. Backwards and Forwards. What would you do? Go back into history to change the present? Get rich using knowledge of the future? Written by Tim Etchells and powerfully performed by Tyrone Huggins, To Move In Time is an unfurling trail of thought in which extraordinary and impossible fantasies are dreamt up, lived out and then discarded. 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.

An Etchells/Forced Entertainment label on a show is always going to draw an audience. And A Move in Time certainly deserves an appreciative audience. Beautifully and engagingly delivered by Tyrone Huggins, the cleverly scripted ideas about the possibilities and challenges of time travel are humorously and thoughtfully explored. One for the must-see list.

A Younger Theatre (4/5 stars) 99 days ago

Tyrone Huggins’ voice is like honey. His sentences ooze, thick and syrupy, lulling his audience into a stunned sort of stupor. Written by Tim Etchells, To Move In Time picks apart the concept of time travel. Huggins pulls at threads connecting the past, present and future as though it were an elaborate tapestry.

Tyrone Huggins’ voice is like honey. His sentences ooze, thick and syrupy, lulling his audience into a stunned sort of stupor. Written by Tim Etchells, To Move In Time picks apart the concept of time travel. Huggins pulls at threads connecting the past, present and future as though it were an elaborate tapestry. Told as a stream of consciousness, the narrative bounces backwards and forwards, before landing in the here and now – a place that breeds a sense of exhaustion, whimsy and melancholia.

I wanted to love this. I was prepared for this to be a transcendental experience. It probably goes to show that expectations are a terrible, terrible thing and should be forcibly removed from one’s heart and mind and locked safely away in a lead safe. But even if I didn’t...

Theatre Weekly (4/5 stars) 112 days ago

To Move In Time will make you feel small. But it will also acknowledge things even smaller, decisions ranging from those impossibly far out of our reach like stopping 9/11 or hindering Trump’s presidency, to choosing a sandwich over soup for lunch. Tyrone Huggins and Tim Etchells have truly partnered on an understated masterpiece that playfully meddles with time, stretching and flinging it from world-changing alterations, to the most insignificant changes.

The Guardian (4/5 stars) 114 days ago

Tim Etchells is surely a master of the late-night pub conversation. Give him a thought experiment and watch him go. Here, in this hypnotic Forced Entertainment monologue, he plays with the question of what we would do if we could travel back in time. It is a game many of...
