Tappuccino (Brunch Bunch)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2019

Right, so this tap-dancing coffee bean goes to Switzerland and teams up with a Barista to save the rainforests. Got it? ‘Tappuccino’ is a warm, welcoming introduction to the all-too-rarely overlapping fields of environmentalism and tap. The former admittedly felt a little decaf, knowing how up on this stuff kids tend to be now. There are some nice bits about the little things we can all do – lights off, plastic straws etc. – but I’m not sure it’d pass muster as a handbook for the Extinction Rebellion youth wing. Maybe that’s ok, though. It’s a nice enough, gentle primer and there is plenty of lovely singing, super dancing, infernally catchy original music and sweet audience interaction to make for an entertaining show.

Gilded Balloon, until 26 Aug.
