The Conquest of Happiness is a unique theatre event which will have its world premiere in Derry~Londonderry before its presentation in Belfast, Mostar, Sarajevo and Ljubljana.
An international cast of artists from Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Bosnia – Herzegovina and Slovenia will explore, through music, dance and
drama, the illusive and tantalising possibility of happiness in our increasingly unhappy world.
Can we be happy? The piece is inspired by Bertrand Russell’s famous essay on happiness. Think Big because it will be a multiartform large scale open air
event which will be supported by a community chorus in every city in which it will be presented.
This work will be led by internationally acclaimed director Haris Pasovic whose recent work Sarajevo Red Line Project illustrated in the most heartbreakingly
poetic way how art can help people transcend the horrifying legacy of war.
