My Happy Place

Directed by Drew Anthony and featuring Vanguard Performing Arts with choreography by Daniella Papa (WA)

Sometimes we all need a place that we can go to, just to ‘be’ and to ‘hang’ and to ‘feel’ and to just forget about the dramas and hassles that life can often dish up. So, we’ve created the perfect place for you to spend some time and to just… well… to just be happy. Picture 16 stages featuring 16 dancers with LED lightsabers.
