“Super Connected invites us to really engage with what is perhaps, one of the most important issues of our time. A poignant reflection on our current relationship to our phones and virtual reality. We really need to spend time meaningfully connecting with each other, in person.”
– Michelle Baker Jones Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and therapist at Imperial College.
DATES & TICKETS
SUPER CONNECTED LIVE
After debuting to standing ovations at London’s Roundhouse, Tim Arnold’s new album ‘Super Connected’ finally goes on tour in 2024. Find out more by signing up here.
Starring Tim Arnold, Sarah Kershaw with narration by Stephen Fry
Developed with and Directed by Kate Alderton
Produced by Nim Arnold for The Tim Arnold Company
An innovative fusion of film, live music, and theatre about the existential ticking time bomb of social media. Full of wit, wisdom, passion, and terror, the show chronicles one family’s encounter with addictions to technology.
When the film rolls, only a few feet away from the audience, indie rock artist Tim Arnold performs the film’s soundtrack live. With the scale of Radiohead and panache of Bowie, Arnold acts both on stage and on screen.
Pulled in and out of the screen by the characters as they vie for attention, Tim grapples with the meaning of connection and intimacy. Super Connected is a night out at the theatre, a rock gig and a movie all rolled into one.
Before the show, audience are invited to place their phones into a lockable pouch to experience the freedom (or discomfort) of being free from the digital tug of constant connectivity. After the show there is time to connect with Tim, the cast and each other in our Screenless Social. Suitable for ages 15+
