We're Probably Really Really Happy Right Now by Ellen Grimshaw

Presented by Public Service Announcement Theatre Co


What does fear and restriction versus instinct and freedom look like when they co-exist? Can they co-exist?

Volatile, unpredictable, hilarious, and filled with wrath, We’re Probably Really Really Happy Right Now is looking at the madness of a culture soaked in ludicrous toxicities ranging from capitalism and misogyny to tall poppy syndrome. Inspired by performance art, classical music, and experimental dance choreography such as Pina Bausch and Reza Abdoh, WPRRHRN liberates us from gender binaries and compliance and is out of order. It has to be because society is! This is an incendiary reaction to conformity!
