Come as you are. Drink it in. Dance. Happy Hour is an improvised, immersive performance piece from Almanac Dance Circus Theatre. Sensing, feeling, listening, queering, climbing, balancing, and weaving, an ensemble of acrobats, dancers, and fools combine childlike curiosity, playfulness, and wonder to challenge an adult world too full of unspoken rules and stubborn habits.
This is our hour to be happy — whatever that means. Or at least try. Can we do it? What will happen if we fail? In a future where the only certainty is uncertainty, Almanac converts its improvisational creation process — honed through past performances such as Exile 2588, Leaps of Faith and Communitas, 5 Years Later — into a shifting ephemeral performance that melds itself to every space and circumstance. Featuring both Almanac veterans and newcomers, Happy Hour blends the edges of circus, dance, and physical theatre, creating authentic emotions and absurdity in equal measure.
Happy Hour is presented as part of Cannonball Festival, a satelite festival produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre and the Maas Building featuring over 150 events and performances of 24 original shows across 2 performance spaces and 21 days. Learn more at cannonballfestival.org.
Featuring Nathan Alford-Tate, Amalia Colon-Nava, Ben Grinberg, Lauren Johns, Gabrielle Revlock, Mae West, and more, with live original music. Production coordinated by Kate Hanley
