There is only one innate error, and that is to believe that we exist to be happy. (A. Schopenhauer)
The project GIVE ME MONEY, GIVE ME SEX_What the hell is happiness? (GMGS), stems from the need to confront a concept, an engine of everyday life and its often obsessive search: happiness. Everyone struggles to achieve it without understanding where or how to go. The only certainty is the (self-)banishment from a perfect world, and the awareness of the daily difficulty of choice. And so we ask ourselves: how should we live?
Codice Ivan was founded in 2008 by Anna Destefanis, Leonardo Mazzi and Benno Steinegger. The group’s work was immediately oriented mainly towards the performing arts/theatre, but it also started a research path aimed at using different formats. In 2009 they won the Scenario Prize with Pink, Me & The Roses and in 2011 the TransartPrize with the project SCORE. Since 2009 Codice Ivan has been part of Fies Factory, a project of Centrale Fies.
