“Post-truth [adjective] relating to a situation in which people are more likely to accept an argument based on their emotions and beliefs, rather than one based on facts:
“The referendum was the first major vote in the era of post-truth politics.”
“He dubs the current administration a “post-truth” White House.”” – Cambridge Dictionary
Have you ever been absolutely sure of something? Have you looked at a situation or made a decision and been 100% completely, totally and undeniably sure of what you’re doing? Are you certain that you can be sure of anything?
In this space, there are 4 of us, on stage, performing for you, the audience. The space we occupy is black, lit by stage lights so that you can see us. And we can see you too. This you can be sure of.
Dive into our world where 4 performers try to make sense of what it means to live in a Post-truth, alternative fact world. Ouroboros uses a language mixed of visuals, movement, sparing words and sign to offer a battle of emotions vs facts reflecting the current political climate.
