Awkward Happiness
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Awkward Happiness is a reflection on the futility of happiness. We have an uncanny ability to find lovers with demons complementary to our own. Is happiness something that we seek in another person? This moving and thought-provoking physical performance is inspired by themes from Kunderas The Unbearable Lightness of Being and Bruckners Perpetual Euphoria. The story follows two couples in their journey to understanding and discovering happiness. Relationships are built upon layers of beauty, secrets, surprises and misunderstandings. The result is a breathtaking, striking performance; one that doesnt answer questions, but makes observations that can double as solutions.
