The ‘remarkable’ (Scotsman) and bite-sized Jack AG Britton presents Mighty; a TED-talk-meets-theatre show that combines comedy, live music and spoken word to ask the big (or little) question: should we be taking Heightism more seriously?
Often whimsical, sometimes woeful, Mighty delves into masculinity, body image and mental health in a documentary performance that could just about make it onto the best rides at Alton Towers.
'Hilarious and thought provoking' **** Three Weeks
I have been working as a solo maker of contemporary performance since I graduated from my MA with distinction in Space and Contemporary Performance Making at De Montfort University Leicester in 2013.
I have performed my work at a variety of venues and festivals including Pulse Festival, Camden People's Theatre and Summerhall's Edinburgh Fringe programme.
My practice focuses on autobiography and documentary, using personal experiences as a window I explore broader topics of nostalgia, curiosity and perspective.
I combine elements of comedy, storytelling, both retro and modern technology, spoken word poetry and physicality to create informal and contemplative work.
I have created two of performance projects, with the help of Arts Council Funding. '1.9' a show that chronicles my personal history with Parkour and ‘I Used to Hear Footsteps’; a devised piece of documentary theatre about my haunted childhood home
I’m currently working on my third solo ACE funded show ‘MIGHTY’ a performance that uses a combination of live looping, spoken word and comedy to ask the audience ‘should we be taking heightism more seriously?’.
I have been an Associate artist with In Good Company (2015 - 16) and am currently an associate of Attenborough Arts Centre Leicester and a Curve Breakthrough artist
I am also a founding member of performance collective Tetrad.Book Now

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor: Recommended for Week 2 Vault Festival Picks: 'Mighty is not just a show. It is a way in which Britton, so often over-looked, can make himself visible. He commands the stage. He is mighty.'
Within Her Words **** 'You will love it. Wacky and poignant.'
Broadway World **** 'He is smart, eloquent, and unequivocally entertaining in his denunciation.'
Creative Reviews UK **** 'From complex to astonishing, Mighty is a strong, clever production balancing from the fun to the facts, and makes you leave with your thoughts turning into full-on conversations.'
