What is happiness? When and how does it happen? The offbeat Brigitte and Roser tackled the question in their 2015 duet  Coûte que coûte, and now answer it with six actors/performers.
 

In a troubled world, curious people are looking for a path to happiness, worryingly, joyfully and tenaciously. These eight seekers go from experience to experience in solo, duet or group form, challenging roles and genres. From confusion to disillusion, emotions animate words and shake up anxious or joyful bodies. In this laboratory where humor and poetry mess around, they do their best to live happily. Do they have anyone to help? The text by Elisabeth Gonçalves – who previously wrote Coûte que coûte -  is funny and poignant, revealing our conflicted feelings and chaotic  humanness. In the last twenty years, the Spanish Roser and the French Brigitte – directors, authors, performers (notably for Maguy Marin, Angelin Preljocaj, Jean-François Peyret and Sophie Loucachevsky) have presented their outlandish and iconoclastic vision filled with songs, dance and theater. What if happiness was about absurdity? Let’s check it out!
