The Show

What makes us happy?

Happy as Larry is a funny, playful and poignant new dance show, which investigates the elusive nature of human happiness. Created by award-winning Australian choreographer Shaun Parker, this powerful performance combines an intoxicating mix of ballet, break-dance, roller-skating and highly physical contemporary dance.

The cast of characters is developed from the Enneagram, a psychological system that maps nine personality types: The Perfectionist; the Giver; the Performer; the Tragic Romantic; the Observer; the Devil’s Advocate; the Optimist; the Boss; and the Mediator – all rich inspiration for Shaun Parker’s insightful creativity. Set to a vibrant electro/acoustic score, the performers bring fun and danger to the fore in this innovative and moving dance work.
