Project Haha (RemoteControl Theatre)

Project Ha Ha

What is happiness? Can we measure it? Can we even really recognise it? These are the questions asked by international company RemoteControl Theatre in ‘Project Haha’, a raw and provoking exploration of the way we think about happiness. Two performers move each other around the stage, whilst a video of a third, a woman in a sparse living room completing menial tasks, is played; a fourth performer can occasionally be heard over a loud speaker. The physicality of the presentation is something that stays with you, and something that lends itself completely to exploring the abstract concept of happiness. An intriguing show of few words, this darkly-humoured piece is a must see.

Summerhall, until 30 Aug.
