An Attempt to Lose Time
Irnham Hall Sunday 21 April 6.30pm

Flyer for ICE April show

A show about time! Imagine life without a watch or a clock. Before the railways, there was no such thing as ‘the’ time. Villages and towns had their own local times. Time was decided by the sun, and all people had to do was look at it.

200 years later, Miranda can’t stop thinking about time. What time it is, how long she’s been doing something, how long she should have been doing it, what time she has to wake up, how long she’ll have to sleep, is that long enough, and how long is left? It’s exhausting.

We all live our life by time. We count down the hours, we even push time back and forward. In this great show Miranda asks: does it have to be this way? It hasn’t always been this way. It isn’t this way for everyone. What if she decided to stop living like this? Would it be possible to live without time? And what is time anyway?

Featuring entertaining musings on quantum physics, climate change, dinosaurs, and the destruction of humanity, this one-woman show sees Miranda leave the city, take to the canals, turn feral, fix an obsolete diesel engine, and form questionable relationships with moorhens in her quest to escape time.

With a larger-than-life series of mysterious sculptures assembled live on stage, this is part-performance, part-installation – with a surprise at the end!

Funny, thought-provoking, surreal, and a little silly in places.
