      It’s moving from I to It – 'The Play'

      Tim Etchells with FormContent
      Tate Modern, London
    2. It’s moving from I to It – The Play is a new performance written and directed by Tim Etchells for two actors (Jennifer Pick and Bruno Roubicek). Commissioned by London-based curatorial initiative FormContent, the work playfully animates the questions and discourses informing their two-year project It’s moving from I to It, of which Etchells’s play forms the final chapter. Following the presentation in at the Tate in London, the piece travels to various venues, landing at If I Can't Dance in Spring 2014.

      Tim Etchells was invited to draw upon the rich and dense body of voices and propositions constituting FormContent's programme, responding in the form of a linguistically explosive and unstable play through which he makes a subjective and playful reading of the scenes and thematics of the project.

      Tim Etchells is an artist, performance maker and writer, who has worked in a variety of contexts, notably in his role as artistic director of the performance ensemble Forced Entertainment, based in Sheffield and founded in 1984.

      FormContent is a curatorial initiative, founded in 2007 with the intent of experimenting with exhibition formats and fostering collaborations that challenge the reciprocity of artistic and curatorial practices.

      Commissioned and produced as part of Corpus, new collaborative network for commissioning performance-related work co-founded by If I Can’t Dance, Amsterdam, Playground (STUK & M), Leuven and Tate Modern, London (as part of BMW Tate Live). With the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union.
      The It’s moving from I to It series of commissions is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
