The Laughing Game

The Laughing Game (2020)

The Laughing Game by Antoinette Helbing is a choreographic research of laughter. In this solo work the audience is invited on stage – becoming the essential scenography for this social game to happen. The performance unfolds laughter as social communication, bodily state, stirring sound and sparkling sensation into an aesthetic, sounding and thought provoking encounter with laughter. Breaking with the common sense of looking at laughter as being funny, laughing will be portrayed as a playful but also serious game. Hahaha. 

The Laughing Game is a tribute to laughter - a celebration of its functions and particularities.
