Promises of Happiness


jerwood dancehouse

Are you happy? Would more money help? A hug from a stranger? A new mobile phone or cheaper car insurance?

This is a dance show for joy, for simple pleasures, for saying ‘no’ to people who want to tell us what should or should not make us happy; and to endless promises of happiness alluding to a world just out of reach.

Here, exploring happiness is more important than ever actually finding it.

Let’s go there together.
