Happy Families

An experimental performance piece, that explored the themes of family and the immediate expectation of a 'connection' towards family from blood relations. We took a Dadaist influence of anti-establishment and deconstructed family using objects connecting to sweetness such as sugar, syrup and coke. Then themes of cleanliness with toothpaste and washing- these then all connected to the theme of perfection and the perfect image that a family is pressured to have, whereas in reality all families are different. 'Happy Families' broke the stereotype of having a picturesque family with a dadaist influence.
