Truth Or Dare, Britney Or Goofy, Nacht Und Nebel, Jesus Christ Or Superstar
A Hetpaleis and Sontag Production (Ghent) with the Unicorn, Festival Tweetakt (Utrecht) and Het Nationale Theater (The Hague)
- Concept and direction by Lies Pauwels
The makers of The
Hamilton Complex return with a new UK première direct from Antwerp, in a new co-commission with the Unicorn.
In Truth or Dare, Lies Pauwels brings together seven real young adults who all have psychological vulnerabilities, three real super-models and a priest. Together, we explore the demons we wrestle with, as individuals and as a world.
Lies Pauwels' work is challenging, perceptive and authentic. In this piece, she pushes the boundaries of truth just that little bit further, creating a world in which nothing is obvious, yet everything is recognisable. This show is energising, complex and exciting experimental theatre.
