Would more money help? A hug from a stranger? A new mobile phone or cheaper car insurance?
Promises of Happiness 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.
Partly developed here at Trestle Arts Base in 2012, with the trailer created by St Albans Digital Arts Collective VIDEOfeet, we are delighted to be welcoming Promises of Happiness back with it’s full scale smile agenda on Tuesday 14 April, 7.30pm.
“Beautifully observed and condensed into a deep, reflective and thought provoking experience” –Audience member of the work-in-development sharing (Trestle Arts Base)
