The Happy Slap Philosophy
With a true belief in the power of partying, we make installations, creations, shows & experiences which highlight the ridiculousness of the mundane. We allow audiences to share with us the huge potential that exists in ‘silliness’.
Happy Slap Boutique started off as a small make-up boutique, helping people at festivals submerge themselves into the party atmosphere.
A team of fully trained makeup artists would provide bespoke make-up, body art, wigs and sparkle in our unique ‘happy slap’ style. Yet the company always had the vision to work collaboratively with all types of performers and artists. We wanted to fuse together the possibilities of make-up with performance.
In 2010 the dream came true and Happy Slap Boutique became more than just a makeup tent but a complete theatrical party experience. Over the past years our company has steadily grown, bringing our crew of over 40 maniacs to renowned festivals such as Kendal Calling and Beat-Herder as well as working with companies such as Prangsta and The Inflatable Church at Bestival and Electric Picnic.
We work all year round at private events, festivals and club nights. Our company performs at events such as RUMPUS, Kendal Calling, Proud Camden and Raise the Roof to constantly challenge ‘organised fun’ to spread its wings and evolve. We will never stop working on new and exciting ideas to create even bigger, crazier experiences to push the boundaries of partying.
