Your ultimate fantasy becomes reality in Funny Soft Happy & The Opposite : life as a jazz musical dance experience. If you take life seriously, this is the dress rehearsal. While life flashes by, Funny Soft Happy & The Opposite offers a way out. Six dancers demonstrate a high-intensity training for body and mind, with which you build endurance for life.
Because we desperately need it in this world that is spinning faster and faster and in which values ​​such as care, compassion and listening to each other are under pressure. How do we individuals relate to each other in such a world? Or to the group? Funny Soft Happy & The Opposite will work with you to build a new space in which these questions can be asked, full of rainbows, smoke curtains and dazzling bodies. 
Courtesy of Bob Fosse musicals, neuroscience, and '80s workout videos, six diverse dancers give you a glimpse of what life could be like when we give in to what Funny Soft Happy & The Opposite is about: this life that we live. Join: Feel free to toss your hair, have a drink, share a thought and dance afterwards. If human life is a performance. Then we need a human performance practice. To build stamina for life. (See original text)
