Play sounds from the show

A + Project

Happiness Reapeats Itself charts the effects of the infamous and controversial American Neurosurgeon Walter Freeman and the legacy of his labotomy experiments of the 1950’s. Utilising actual case studies, testimonials and medical records, a cast of exceptional and extraordinary performers conjure up precious lost moments, obliterated memories and relive the devastating effects these operations inflicted on a generation.

Funded by The Arts Council of Wales. Co-commissioned by Aberystwyth Arts Centre with support from the Creu Cymru Wales Dance Consortium, Dance Consortium and The Atrium, University of South Wales.
