For three nights only, The Met Office plays host to Bring The Happy Live, a theatre event mapping and celebrating happiness in Exeter. An intimate and interactive evening somewhere between a wedding and a wake, Bring The Happy Live is a spectacular culmination of a project mapping moments and memories of happiness in Exeter and across the country.
The project will begin with artists, Invisible Flock (an interactive arts trio based in Leeds), occupying a disused shop in Exeter High Street. Armed with giant maps of Exeter and stacks of tea, they will invite passers-by to come in and share a memory – a first kiss, a longed-for baby, a chance encounter.
Monitoring where it happened and how happy, on a scale of one to ten the memory should be rated, the artists will attempt to draw a map of Exeter’s happiness. The memories collected – sometimes beautiful, sometimes tragic and sometimes completely ridiculous – will then be added to those from elsewhere in the UK and retold in a moving, joyous and entertaining show with live music from the 6–piece rock band, Hope and Social.
