Tim Etchells is best known for his work as artistic director and writer of the performance ensemble Forced Entertainment, one of the UK’s most respected and groundbreaking experimental theatre companies. He has also created diverse projects of his own in a variety of media including SMS, video and installation.
Etchells has written widely about performance and contemporary culture, and has published three books: The Dream Dictionary (Duckworth 2001); Endland Stories (Pulp Books 1999); and Certain Fragments – a collection of theoretical writing and performance texts (Routledge 1999).
His novel The Broken World, a refreshing mixture of the easy-going contemporary charm of Douglas Coupland and the depth and dark inventiveness of J.G. Ballard and David Mitchell, was published by William Heinemann, Random House, in July 2008.
