Preview: The Happiness Machine

25 09 2012

Celebrating the 20th birthday of The Invisible Circus, The Happiness Machine comes to the Big Top @ Creative Common for what promises to be a spectacular new theatrical circus show from the team best known in Bristol for putting on the incomparable Carny Ville.

The Invisible Circus promise their biggest and boldest show yet, with an ensemble cast of performers, actors and musicians “and an insatiable appetite for adventure”.

Creative Director Doug Francis says: “This year is the 20th anniversary of The Invisible Circus and bringing such a big troupe of amazing people together for the devising and creation of The Happiness Machine is the perfect celebration.”

The Happiness Machine, from October 4-21, will be the final event of the year to take place at the Big Top, which in its debut season has seen everything from Damon Albarn leading dozens of musicians off a train for Africa Express, to a cross-dressing Finnish zombie band playing a live score to a 1924 silent film about Martians.
