Review: Mighty, Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

Mighty is an exceptional new drama developed by Adam Deusien in collaboration with Alison Plevey, and one of Australia’s most astonishing living sculptor’s Harrie Fasher. Over a two-and-a-half-year period Fasher, Deusien and Plevey worked collaboratively in forging a connection between theatrical production and visual art. This has resulted in highly stylised and impressive production that oscillates around a key question: ‘Is might right?’. Such a question came from a concern that there is a disproportionate amount of value given to power especially when it undercuts other ways of being in the world –attitudes and sensibilities that are morally commendable such as compassion and kindness.
