The Umbilical Brothers - The Distraction

Fri 26 Jul 2024 8:00 pm
Theatre Royal

Do you love staring at screens? Are you staring at a screen right now? You should get out more, specifically to a show with an enormous screen smack-bang in the middle.  

The Umbilicals take the energy of live performance and the spectacle of cinema and smash 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 expected. 

The Distraction: enabling your screen addiction.  

The Umbilical Brothers are an international comedy phenomenon. Their unique mix of mind-bending comedy and back-breaking physicality has taken the world’s favourite Australian comedy duo to 40 countries – from stadiums supporting Robin Williams to stadiums supporting N*Sync.  

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