‘happy hour’ and the power of the smile!

An evening of fast paced comedy awaits you when you visit the Unity theatre this weekend!

Tmesis Theatre, the physical theatre that brought us ‘physical fest’ and the wildly acclaimed successful ‘That’s Amore’ production, is back with another Tmesis triumph.

This new comedy, explores our 21st century obsession with happiness and success.
Can we learn to be happy? And can our emotions be bought and sold?
The ‘happiness industry’ would have us think so…..

Enjoy this 60 minute non-stop performance for what will be an unforgettable night of feel-good comedy. Re-live the workers nightmare on Level 3 as they race against the clock to reach their targets of Smiley Faces.

This play is full of energy and great entertainment that keeps you engaged with their continuous vibrant on stage antics. Take a seat this weekend and awe in wonder as the consequences of the workers ‘happy hour’ actions become as tragic as they are hilarious.

This is a wickedly warming, brutally honest and heart-breaking raunchy exposition of a production, showing all the pitfalls of emotions intertwined with the often fractious friendships in the workplace.

Don’t miss this roller-coaster of a performance that leaves you questioning ‘happiness’ but captures the glimmer of ‘happiness’ and the potential that lies in all of us.

A play that boasts explosive action, exploring power, desire and love…..a play with certainly plenty of action!

‘That’s Amore’ Unity Theatre. Thurs-Saturday 31st Jan. 8pm

Hold on tight for this dream like fairy-tale of love with all the trimmings! Hats off to the well established ‘Tmesis’ theatre which brings a night of refreshing dance theatre; intricate, fast paced and with a dash of athleticism and humour.

This fast-paced, passionate and poignant piece of physical theatre explores the vast world and culture of romantic love: from chance encounters to hidden desires, and emotional extremes to the science of romance.

Discover before your eyes, the flesh and philosophy behind what makes our hearts beat faster.
This theatre is certainly athletic and gutsy, dealing with the loss of, and longing for love, with a punch of strong visual style.

I enjoyed this piece of ‘power’ entertainment, with a great deal of sentimentality. I left with a head full of butterflies, riding on a cloud of elation having explored the light and dark sides of love in a playful and in some ways deeply personal show.

This show, combines the Tmesis trademark physically, and has an ensemble of professional performers along with a text from long term collaborator and award winning writer, Chris Fittock. Applause must go to the stunning backdrop of visuals and combination of popular and original scores which add perfume to the bouquet of love that’s amore.

You will love this show and beg for more; it’s a blast of dynamic entertainment that thrills the inners and injects the fun in your mind as you identify, engage and disengage with this high octane journey through love.

If you miss a viewing this week at the Unity then checkout, The Rose Theatre, Edge Hill University Ormskirk, The Brindley, Runcorn.

This is one show not to be missed!
……….erotic, chaotic but hypnotic!
