HAPPY AS LARRY

SHAUN PARKER & COMPANY

PRESENTED BY PERTH INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL WITH SYDNEY FESTIVAL, ADELAIDE FESTIVAL AND BRISBANE FESTIVAL

SUITABILITY: Year 8–12 Dance
THEMES: Contemporary dance, ballet, breakdance, The Enneagram

Potent, playful and cunningly layered, Australian director-choreographer Shaun Parker's new work is a buoyant and powerful exploration of human happiness.

An emerging star in world dance, Parker won the 2008 Australian Dance Awards' Outstanding Achievement in Independent Dance for his daring This Show is About People. His new work reaffirms a reputation for choreography driven more by human emotion than pure physicality, as nine amazing performers take on the personality types of the Enneagram, a psychological mapping system.

Their platform consists of a free-fl owing mix of hard-hitting contemporary dance and movement, ballet, break-dance and more, accentuated perfectly by a vibrant electro-acoustic score from Nick Wales and Bree van Reyk.
