A brand new theatre show is coming to South Uist this weekend.
‘Mmm Hmmm’ is a brand new experimental play, a mix of theatre and a-capella song.
The company have been performing in the South Bank Centre in London, and are making their way up to tour the isles this week. The show will be performed in Stoneybridge Hall on Saturday 11th April, on an evening where the Ythan Fiddlers will also perform.
‘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. Verity Standen’s original a-cappella songs evoke the awkward, heart-breaking and hilarious moments that characterise what it means to be human.
