Tim Etchells & Forced Entertainment
With Tyrone Huggins
To Move In Time // 7.30pm
“Etchells' script is a masterpiece of precise observation and perfectly crafted musicality” - The Herald (Scotland) - on That Night Follows Day
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 (Black Men Walking Royal Exchange/Royal Court) 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, it flits from the everyday to the fantastical in a way that is comic, absurd and tinged with melancholy.
With Louise Ahl
A Sea of Troubles // 9pm
A performance space. Silence. Memory. A sea of male bodies.
A Sea Of Troubles is a striking new choreographic work created by Peter McMaster (Wuthering Heights, The Guardian, The Herald ) with Louise Ahl (Holy Smoke, The Herald).
Slow, tense and tender, this unfurling performance confronts the fragility of memory, masculinity and the burdens of language. Recovering traces of male presence in theatrical history, it explores how putting space between words and their meaning can re-write what has come before.
This quietly beautiful work urges you to look closely at yourself, your space and what a moving male body can mean.
