Super Connected LIVE



#FindYour Weird, Escape, Story, Groove, Thrill, Talent

Is it time to break up with our phones?


Based on the critically acclaimed album by indie rock polymath Tim Arnold, ‘Super Connected LIVE’ is a Black Mirror-esque show fusing film, live music, theatre & the ticking time bomb of social media & big tech.



As the film rolls, Arnolds performs on stage & screen accompanied by pianist Sarah Kershaw (The Irrepressibles) & ballerina Daniela Maccari (The Lindsay Kemp Co). With the scale of Radiohead & panache of Bowie: a digital age take on the silent movie. With narration by Stephen Fry.

Full of wit, wisdom & terror, the show explores a family’s struggle with technology addiction.


Being pulled in & out of the screen by the attention-grabbing characters, Arnold grapples with what connection & intimacy mean in a digitally distracted world

Lock your phones in our pouches, pocket them, & break free from the digital grind before the show! Join us after for a Screenless Social to chat with each other & the creative team.
