Everyone should be free to pursue their own happiness – but how does this actually work? In «The Pursuit of Happiness», the dancers become happiness hunters. They are convinced that movement and, in particular, dance are powerful tools to generate, process and transmit feelings. The performers also believe that happiness is a common property. As such, they strive to improve the collective mood through interaction with the audience members.

Masks required.
