Happiness lives in the Meanwhile (DK/PT)

Paulo Dias Duarte (g), and others

The pursuit of happiness can make us unhappy ...

Paulo Dias Duarte, together with a large ensemble, creates a concert installation, which he calls Happiness lives in the Meanwhile - a combination of music performance and installation artwork that is about our ability to observe ourselves and evaluate what stage we are at in our pursuit of happiness.

Inspired by John Lennon's quote: Life is what happens while we make other plans, he focuses on how we - in the pursuit of happiness - can become unhappy. Based on the idea that happiness is a kind of goal or reward that we achieve after a large number of sacrifices.

The installation consists of four screens that show a live concert that takes place simultaneously in the same room where the screens are located.

The live broadcast of the interaction between the audience and the music enables viewers to observe themselves during the concert and become part of the installation.

Paulo Dias Duarte is an award-winning Portuguese composer who began his career in the mid-nineties. After his studies in classical guitar, he moved to London to study jazz at Middlesex University. In 2014, he completed a master's degree in composition at the Trinity Laban Conservatory of Music and Dance.

Although his primary focus has been big band music, he has also written music for contemporary dance, theater and film.
