Debs went on a journey to find happiness… and found something else. Travelling to the remote Scottish Island of Eigg and Cape Cod, Provincetown, she began an experiment to discover the secrets of ‘How to be Happy’. Debs found herself feeling more disconnected as she lost herself in these wild landscapes. Documenting her experiences on film and sound, Debs tells us what she found; procrastination, Body Weather and being photographed by Andy Warhol’s Studio 54 photographer. In this comedic and uplifting sequel to her critically acclaimed solo show Hi, Anxiety Debs shares the highs and lows of discovering happiness from a place within.

‘she guided us through her quirky journey to enlightenment with delightful storytelling.’
