Re-staging of Sincerely Yours by Wee/Francesco Scavetta and Sanna Myllylahti
Based on questions about truth and lies in the context of performing art, the piece takes place in a world where the artificial aims to be real and the reality seems weirdly unnatural. Lying might be considered one of the icons of the human condition. We start lying very early in our childhood, even before having the ability to comprehend whether a statement is believable or not. One recent study found that most people lie once or twice a day, and over the course of a week deceive about 30 of the people they interact with personally. One might end up drawing a conclusion that one cannot be absolutely sure about anything, except what one chooses to believe in.
We are wondering. Is art just a question of belief?
