Mmm Hmmm

NottDance Festival 2015 Running time: approximately 55 minutes Suitable for ages 12+ Mmm Hmmm is a playful, poignant and musical journey shaped by three exceptional female voices jumping between sound, worlds and lyrical styles. Using intricate vocal techniques and rich harmony and choreography by Dan Canham, 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, heart-breaking and hilarious moments that characterise what it means to be human. Verity's composition for Bristol Old Vic, Living Structures and Tobacco Factory Theatres (amongst others) have been widely enjoyed in the UK and Europe. Shook me to my core. I've never seen anything like it. - A Younger Theatre
