“I created FACT OR FICTION? as a response to our post-truth civilization and the need for intimacy, humor, and joy in performance,” said creator and choreographer Caitlin Trainor. “FACT OR FICTION? takes dance  into the realms of comedy and storytelling, while allowing spectators to laugh, feel engaged, and decide what  the truth is. Simply put, it's a very good time.” 

FACT OR FICTION? performers include by Liz Hepp, Allegra Herman, Illya Lenych, Claire Louis Goldes, Morgen Littlejohn, Daniel Pahl, and Maliq Williams. FACT OR FICTION? is produced by Fran Kirmser.  

Tickets, priced at $30, are on sale now at https://thepit-nyc.com/events/fact-or-fiction/ Additional dates to be announced.
