“Veldman sure knows how to pick all the right ingredients for a dance show." Dance Tabs

Are you truly happy?

The question is almost impertinent yet we seem obsessed with the ultimate goal of reaching happiness.

Four outstanding dancers and celebrated violinist/composer Alexander Balanescu share the stage in this intricate and theatrical, moving and relatable performance.

Best known for her work with Rambert, Northern Ballet and HeadspaceDance, Didy Veldman launches her own company Umanoove with The Happiness Project looking at western society’s fascination with fulfilment.

“Fuelled by live and recorded music – a truly fine cast includes the composer Alexander Balanescu, a violinist with a fascinating onstage presence – the dancers’ skilful, shared sense of exploration keeps things fresh and engaging.”  Times


Stay after the show on Tue 2 May for an informal chat with Didy and the company.
