TRUTH Will Tour the UK
Truth is a spellbinding fusion of song and choreography. Personal stories collected from individuals from across the globe, Hackney to Norway, from Manchester to Mexico describe a moment when someone told a truth or a lie, and the impact of doing so on their life. These testimonies that are by turns devastating, hilarious and touching. The vocal and gestural world created by performers Victoria Couper, Krystian Godlewski, Liz Kettle and Helen Chadwick charges the power of the material with emotion and beauty, inviting us to reflect on our own truth and lies.
This beautiful and thought-provoking song theatre show explores the once-simple notion of Truth in our messy modern age of fake news.
"When truth threatened my life, I told a lie..."
