Are you happy? Everybody should be. Happiness is the whole point of our existence. And yet, recent sociological studies indicate that most people only experience occasional whiffs of contentment - and when they do, they’re immediately anxious about loosing the feeling within approximately 23 seconds. Adding that up, the average person will experience only fourteen and a half minutes of real bliss over the course of their entire lifetime.
What have gone wrong? How did happiness slipped through our fingers? These are the questions, IGNORANCE try to answers in a magnificent puppet theatre for adults only.
The show takes place in a cave – okay, not really a cave, it takes place in a theatre, but in fact there’s not that huge of a difference. The stage is lit by a fire – don’t worry, it’s not real – that casts flickering shadows over some strange primitive rite. Using rocks, branches and bones the performers tell us the story about the blissful origin of primitive man, and how our brains have evolved to the hideous bliss sucking parasites they are today. The play looks into why we as people are not happy, and how we can solve this problem without resorting to alcohol, drugs or a lobotomy in the pursuit of happiness.
