Competition: Win tickets to see Happy as Larry at The Lowry

PULP has teamed up with The Lowry to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to see Happy as Larry, the first ever UK visit by the critically acclaimed Shaun Parker, one of Australia’s foremost Director/Choreographers at The Lowry on Tue 18 October.

Shaun Parker’s Happy As Larry is a funny, playful, poignant and intelligent investigation into what makes us happy, featuring an ensemble of nine performers – with nine very distinctive personalities – who individually, and collectively, explore the elusive nature of happiness.

Using a free-flowing mix of ballet, roller-skating, contemporary dance and break-dance, each of the 9 performers constructs a unique movement expression for their character. Powerful, highly physical and layered with intricate gesture Happy as Larry is accompanied by a vibrant electro-acoustic score from Nick Wales and Bree van Reyk.
