Mighty (Jack Britton in association with the Pleasance and Leicester Curve)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2019

Theatre met music, spoken word and comedy in this TED talk-style performance, all about heightism and the questions surrounding it. With a loop peddle, computer and microphone, Jack Britton used his voice (and the audience’s at one point) to create tracks to accompany the show. This was impressive to watch but also ensured variety in the show. The occasional singing that was thrown into the tracks was also fantastic, as he has a very strong vocal range. A section he did about Tinder was of particular note, managing to be both hilarious and thought-provoking. With facts, real tweets, and personal stories throughout, ‘Mighty’ is an engaging, amusing performance raising some important questions.

Pleasance Courtyard until 26 Aug.
