MAT Premiers presents Heather Harpham in “Happiness”

Jan 24, 2013 - Jan 27, 2013 Thursday Jan 24 at 7pm, Friday Jan. 25 and Saturday Jan 26th at 8pm, Jan. 27 at 2pm

Millibo Art Theatre, 1367 Pecan St. Colorado Springs, CO 80904
An exhilarating evening of highly kinetic theater, “Happiness” distills the emotional marathon of caring for a perilously sick child into a lyrical narrative that rides the razor thin, vertigo-inducing edge of pathos and humor. Swerving into ethereal landscapes, where mother, child, and doctors morph into characters at a cocktail party in Purgatory, “Happiness” illuminates the accidental grace and punishing wisdom of hospital life as they sear through one child's dream of wellness.

“…a beautiful physicality that incorporates song, gesture and dance.” NYTheatre.com
