The Umbilical Brothers: The Distraction

Concert or Performance

27 Apr 2021 to 2 May 2021 Once Only Event

Do you love staring at screens? Are you staring at a screen right now? You should get out more. Specifically to a show that has an enormous screen smack-bang in the middle of it.

The Umbilicals take the energy of live performance and the spectacle of cinema and smashes them together into a new show performed simultaneously on stage and the big screen. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen, and nothing they’ve ever done, and it will blow your mind way more literally than you are expecting. The Distraction: enabling your screen addiction.

Named as two of Entertainment Weekly’s 100 Most Creative People In Entertainment, they have appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, after James Brown at Woodstock ’99, and before the Queen of England. Their global gigs have included a year long off-Broadway run where they received raves from The New York Times and a New York Drama Desk nomination.

They haven’t just broken the rules of theatre; they’ve invented a new theatrical multiverse. Unbelievable human performance meets special-effects wizardry. It feels so much like magic, you’ll want to burn them at the stake.
