Are we looking for happiness in all the wrong places?
The Happiness Project brought together 12 young people and 6 scientists to create new performance exploring our understanding of happiness and well-being and its relationship to young people in UK.
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 journeys through autobiographical stories set to a musical landscape to explore the human condition. Through working closely with a group of academics and young people, this production aimed to discover a place where scientific research and personal, real life experience meet.
Performed at Summerhall at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2016 and the Roundhouse, London in November 2016.
