How Happy We Would Be, was originally created for Corali’s 21st Anniversary programme as a site specific performance at the Whitechapel Gallery’s recently refurbished top floor creative studio. The starting point for material was the performers autobiography inspired by their childhood photographs and memories. The final performance unfolded using movement, spoken word, narrative cards and an original sound score. The intimate nature of the performance coupled with its physical journey through the space enabled the audience to fully engage with its autobiographic content.
In 2011, Corali reworked and toured the show taking it to 12 venues. It was specially adapted for a disused church (Dilston Grove), two different garden spaces (Tate Modern Garden and St Mary’s secret Garden), and for schools and studio spaces including the new venue at Tooting Brick Box. The tour finished at Laban in November 2011.
