On Wednesday evening March 22nd a theater performance created by 𝗟𝘂𝗰𝗮𝘀 𝗱𝗲 𝗠𝗮𝗻 and a team of musicians, filmmakers, writers and researchers played to a full house in the Corona hall. The subject: happiness. How is happiness going to change in the near future? What is the paradox of happiness? And why do we all claim to be so very happy, even when it's not true?
This program was part of Dutch Happiness Week.
Some audience reviews:
“I learned that the social engineering of happiness is so limited and the valuwewe place on happiness in the Netherlands is something from the past centuries. The foray into a possible future to promote happiness at work was pleasantly confusing as it became increasingly absurd, but no less serious.”
“I was familiar with developments regarding the possible use of chips and other “tracking systems”, but what I heard here was more disturbing than I had suspected. However, I have no idea how real this may be.”
I had never thought so “deeply” about happiness. In this show, the word was given a definition, a background, a history, an evolution and a future. All in a very fun and educational way!"
Cursor wrote a nice article about it : “The entire audience an 8 for happiness? Bullshit!”
