The Paradox of Happiness

Every performer in the house is there as her- or himself and you are encouraged to participate as yourself. You choose how much, you want to invest in the experience. Whether you are ready for an emotionally bungee jumping, or whether you prefer to experience from a gentle and observing place is up to you. Only you know what you long for.

In the search for happiness you can explore aspects as hidden generosity, community, observation of thoughts, focused deed, sensuality, ferocity and silence. Here are no answers; the performers of the universe are themselves as searching as the guest visiting them. At the same tide – incorporated in this search lies an ancient paradox: Isn’t it so that the more you seek out happiness, the less it seems to allow itself to be captivated? Is happiness only found in small moments of inattentiveness? And how then do you create inattentiveness consciously?? The Happiness Paradox is a Human Specific performance created by artistic director Nullo Facchini in collaboration with an international team of performers and a production team – together they all stand behind the original design of the aesthetic and auditory universe.

    This critic left with a sense of great curiosity. It was like a dream in which you blindly accept bizzare factors.
    The Happiness Paradox’ is an individual tour de force, but it is in the interaction between performer and the other spectators that you expand your horizon.
    It is an ambitious task to venture into the audience members personal explorations of the concept of happiness. This is, nonetheless, what Egnsteatret embarks on. They succeed through a tight staging concept to keep the focus on specific and sensuous tasks and spaciousness that provide space for an aesthetic reflection.
