Super Connected – Tim Arnold

Indie Rock and Black Mirror meet social media and the Big Tech time bomb. A gig, a film drama and stage show rolled into one.


“A conceptual lyrical narrative taking aim at big tech’s insidious footprints across our lives”
– Mojo ★★★★

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 and the ticking time bomb of social media & big tech.

As the film rolls, Arnold performs on stage and screen accompanied by pianist Sarah Kershaw (The Irrepressibles) & ballerina Daniela Maccari (The Lindsay Kemp Company). With the scale of Radiohead and panache of BowieSuper Connected LIVE is 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.
