The Happiness Project
August - November 2015
Are we looking for happiness in all the wrong places?
A sold out Edinburgh and Roundhouse, London production exploring our understanding of happiness and well-being, devised by a company of young artists, scientists and academics.
Devised in response to reports that raised concerns over young people’s well-being in the UK, The Happiness Project was an intergenerational piece of personal and moving contemporary theatre that journeyed through autobiographical stories set to a musical landscape to explore the human condition.
Directed by Emma Higham and Tashi Gore (Glas(s) Performance), the production was devised by young artists aged 12-19 and six academics who also performed in the show. Through working closely with this group of academics, the production aims to discover a place where scientific research and personal, real life experience meet.
