#PULSE16 – Mmm Hmmm

No performance info available


A new piece of a cappella song theatre

Presented by Verity-Standen In Association With Tobacco Factory Theatres

Mmm Hmmm is a playful, poignant musical journey shaped by three exceptional female voices jumping between sound worlds and lyrical styles.

Using intricate vocal techniques and rich harmony, Mmm Hmmm holds a magnifying glass up to snapshots of everyday life. One moment a fragile apology, the next a perilous trip to the First Great Western buffet car…Verity Standen’s original a cappella songs evoke the awkward, heartrending and hilarious moments that characterise what it means to be human.

★★★★ Broadway Baby:
‘Mmm Hmmm BLENDS ACAPELLA MUSIC, THEATRE AND MOVEMENT TO CREATE SOMETHING BRAND NEW AND UTTERLY THRILLING.’

★★★★ Exeunt:
‘Mmm Hmmm FORCES US TO LISTEN AGAIN WITH PRICKED UP EARS TO THE MUNDANE AND THE EVERYDAY… SURPRISE FOLLOWS SURPRISE, ALL DELIVERED WITH UTTER CHARM.’

★★★★WhatsOnStage:
‘A PAEAN TO THE WONDERS OF THE HUMAN VOICE.’
