A first kiss, a lost love, a longed for baby, childhood heroes, a proposal, a dance, a chance encounter - where did it happen and how happy did it make you feel?
For four weeks Invisible Flock will occupy a disused city centre location in Limerick and transform it into a giant 3D map of the city.
The public is invited to explore the map, discover what makes others happy and where, and to submit their own happy memory or moment.
Then the memories collected will be transformed into Bring the Happy Live, a spectacular performance.
Somewhere between a wedding and a wake, Bring the Happy Live attempts an extravagant portrait of happiness, as the 1000s of memories collected are retold in their beautiful, sometimes tragic, sometimes ridiculous and occasionally mundane glory.
In collaboration with Hope & Social, the live performance will be an interactive, intimate and moving evening where we ask you to join us in celebrating the happiness of Limerick.
Mapping the City: this community element of the project will run throughout September in an as yet to be confirmed city centre location.
