Luegen

A project by Verena Regensburger and Ensemble, with translation for people with impaired hearing

We lie anywhere between two and 200 times a day – depending on what we classify as lies: untruths, post truths, exaggerations, omissions, courtesies, set phrases... But how can you spot a lie? Is it when gestures and body language undermine what’s being said? To get to the bottom of how truth is constructed, a hearing and a deaf actress meet one another in the piece “Luegen” (Lies). The stage becomes an experimental space for intentional and unintentional communication, a laboratory of authenticity, which invites the viewer to decipher truth, take a closer look and observe.
