»Take my hand, crush it, bruise it – take my heart ’cos I can’t use it.« Truth is all i need, Phil Hayes

Revolving around the themes of love, authenticity and authorship, director, musician and performer Phil Hayes’s latest production ›Love & Happiness‹, created in collaboration with Swiss performer and musician Christophe Jaquet, explores in words and music the complex question of how men express love. When five male musicians of a certain age bring their songs, stories and confessions to the stage what exactly do the words ›true‹ and ›real‹ mean to their audience – and does it matter in the first place?
