Surrealistic circus dive into the nordic nightlife

This fantastical bar crawl explores the weird and awkward experiences that the northern nightlife has to offer, tackling it through the lens of comedy and contemporary circus.

Häppy Hour is an ode to the deep dark north and its social culture. It grapples with the contradictory relationship to alcohol, and explores the weird and awkward experiences that the northern nightlife has to offer. Interpreting it through the lens of contemporary circus and comedy, Häppy Hour approaches real life situations through awkward humour, showing how things aren’t always that serious, and that it’s ok to laugh at ourselves, even at our worst.

The show invites the audience to lighthearted self-reflection in settings that (almost) anyone can recognise themselves in. The three northern artists come together to collaborate on their collective heritage, coming from Iceland, Sweden and Finland.
