Lingua Franca and Local Stages will present Mighty at the Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre on Thursday, February 28; Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2 at 7.30pm.
Mighty is an exploration of strength in our modern times.
In a world of aggression, brutality and intolerance, it asks where is the space for grace, vulnerability and empathy in the way we lead and the ways we relate to each other and our world?
Mighty is an ambitious full length work that asks what is it to be strong in today’s world by exploring how we behave when we are our most vulnerable.
The work draws on hours of interviews as well as found materials like political speeches and philosophical texts and is created using physical theatre, dance, circus, comedy and music.
Following the matinee on Saturday, March 2, audiences are invited to hear sculptor Harrie Fasher and director Adam Deusien onstage in a discussion about their collaboration on Mighty.

He was a much admired teacher at Charles Sturt University and a great supporter of BRAG during his lifetime.
Hendrik Kolenberg was a senior curator at the Art Gallery of New South Wales for three decades, during which time he curated a major retrospective of David’s practice.
