Talking Theatre : 11 Oct, post-show with Luanda Casella

Show Time: 19:30 | 75 mins

Short of Lying is a narrative performance about deceit. More specifically, the piece deals with the power of stories to interpret and manipulate reality and shows us how narrative thinking has been appropriated by the communication media.

In the form of a TED Talk, Luanda Casella focuses attention on the art of oratory and exposes the different mechanisms of deception, thus creating a playful tension between deception and awareness.

The piece is situated in the discordant world of online publishing, which since the 1990s has appropriated narrative thinking and storytelling to serve neoliberal logic.
