What is happiness? What makes us happy? How lucky can we be? Economics professor Micael Dahlen takes up the subject and shares his latest thoughts in a lecture elevated with the theater’s tools. Jenny Andreasson is the director. Premiere on Little Stage on May 9th.

All questions about the diffuse concept of happiness are now the economics professor Micael Dahlen trying to explain. He gives his view on the matter and on man’s strange attempts to get their luck. For his help he has among others a vegan, Einstein and a SYO consultant. About happiness is the fourth in the series Performance Lecture, which is done in a collaboration between the Dramaten& and Nobel Center.

Innovative thinker, writer and finance professor Micael Dahlen is known for his surveys about our age and the future. He has written internationally acclaimed books such as Nextopia and Kaosologi and is a sought-after lecturer both in Sweden and abroad.

Jenny Andreasson has directed a number of plays, often by prominent female dramatists. At Dramaten she has among other things set up Castles in Sweden by Francoise Sagan (2010), Thieves by Dea Loher (2011), Chéri by Colette (2012) and The Innocents by Lillian Hellman (2013).
