Looking for the ultimate happiness? Are you up to physical and mental rushes? Do you always eat the whole bag of chips, all M & M's and the extra hamburger from McD? Are you sitting glued in front of your screen, is your Smartphone burning hot and are you constantly checking your Facebook? Do not worry, you are not alone!
BLISS POINT is a border defying and provocative performance about the momentary gratification, dependency and manipulations. BLISS POINT is a theatrical dopamine kick commenting today's consumer societies – in the tension between ecstatic happiness and physical hell. With the body as a battlefield, we invite you to a tragicomic and absurd universe that poses the question: how far are we prepared to go in the name of the growth economy?
With BLISS POINT, Annika B. Lewis continues her long-standing project of breaking the boundaries of what dance and theatre can be, and in the same time putting modern man under the microscope, in a challenging and entertaining way.
