The latest Vox production, And the Pursuit of Happiness, is no exception. It really tries to explore all the different facets of happiness, says Vox member Ben. Political happiness, happiness through art, a bit about the war and how that war is perpetuating what we think is our pursuit of happiness: ownership and consumption.
Its a work in progress, adds Vox member Oak. My intention is to make a truth-telling experience that runs counter to the shit that we hear in our popular culture, but we have a lot of different voices from the six of us on stage in this show, and it runs the gamut from really hard-hitting stuff about the war to a singing clit. Its hard to make that be sad, so she keeps us cheered up.
