The Umbilical Brother will unveil their new world premiere show THE DISTRACTION at 2020 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and are stating very loudly that it is “a big screen, special effect extravaganza, performed live…and it will blow your mind!”

 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 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 are expecting.

Shane Dundas, the bald member of the Umbilicals, notes “David and I have always imagined movie-like visuals when creating and performing.  This time you get to see what we’re imagining, right there onscreen in real time.  We’ll be wrestling with live special effects.  It’s going to be pretty freaky.”

 WHERE: George Fairfax Studio – Arts Centre Melbourne
