How To Survive A Post-Truth Apocalypse
by Francesca Beard
“Imagine if we could stop lying, imagine if everyone just told the fucking truth.”
Join Francesca Beard, your sham-shaman, on an epic adventure through a wasteland of lies, fictions, and wikipedia facts. Through a series of encounters in this underworld of untruth you will explore lies in their many forms, from political spin, to polite half-truths: ‘We live in a meritocracy" to “thank you Grandma, I love this cardigan." This new show explores our new “post-truth” world that's had enough of experts and asks what is the global cost of make-believe, what is a lie made of and can the truth set us free?
