Dutch choreographer Didy Veldman launched her company Umanoove in 2016 with The Happiness Project, a choreographic investigation of western society’s endless search for fulfillment. The London-based company makes their U.S. debut with this intricate, physical, and theatrical full-length work for four dancers, made in collaboration with celebrated violinist/composer Alexander Balanescu, who performs live.

“Joy at every turn” (Scotland Herald), the dancers of Umanoove are praised for the way in which their “skillful, shared sense of exploration keeps things fresh and engaging” (The Times). Veldman is a prominent figure in the European contemporary dance scene, known for her performance career with Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève (Switzerland) and Rambert Dance Company (Britain) as well as choreography credits that boast over 45 works for 25 leading international companies.
