Das Glück dieser Erde (14-18J)
Questioning, exploring and transforming!
Everyone seems to be looking for the great personal happiness. Countless books have been written on the topic. Philosophers and scientists have been wondering about it for centuries. In the Constitution of the USA it is even established as a basic right. But what exactly is happiness and why do people need it so desperately? In this research lab we will ponder on what is considered as happiness: through interviews we gather some material and develop theatrical actions in direct interaction with our surroundings. We transform into happiness-activists go out on the streets and shake up the normal course of life. We will enhance the local happiness index by spreading happiness cards, do some flash mobs and raise a smile on our fellow citizens. Just like the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said: "Happy people are curious".
