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 Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being and Bruckner’s Perpetual Euphoria. Relationships are built upon layers of beauty, secrets, surprises and misunderstandings.

The story follows two couples in their journey to understanding and discovering happiness. The result is a breathtaking, striking performance; one that doesn’t answer questions, but makes observations that can double as solutions.
