A love story, between UMO and Beckett. With a teeter totter. And ropes.

UMO explores the thoughts, themes, characters and images inspired by the writing of Samuel Beckett with “Fail Better: Beckett Moves UMO,” their critically acclaimed love letter to Samuel Beckett. Five archetypal Beckett characters tackle love, life, death, and goings-on in typical Beckett fashion: with humor, metaphor, stillness, and gross indecencycreating a living, visceral experience. Their exploration takes them into the air on aerial ropes, balancing on a giant sculptural teeter totter and reacting in a sonic world that is the imagined inside of Becketts head.

One hour, with no intermission.

Performances of “Fail Better: Beckett Moves UMO” are limited to 100 people. Masks are required.
