This Is Not The Title
We have created a new performance about lying.
Although that’s not entirely true.
That is to say:
We don’t lie all the time. At least not in the performance. We also do other things. That are also fun.
But not as fun as lying.
Not that lying is fun.
At least not for everyone.
Certainly not for the one being lied to.
They usually don’t find lying fun.
Unless they don’t realize it, of course.
Lying is only bad when found out, right?
And lying is not the same as tricking.
But you have to say that in time. That it wasn’t true. That you were lying.
Well, lying, making it up. For the joke.
Lying is also not always lying.
Lying is a strong word.
Lying is saying a lot.
Sometimes it was just an idea.
Like: ‘it could have been like this too.’
Because that’s true, right?
It could have been like this or like that, right? That could have happened, right?
Even if it wasn’t really like that.
But what is really real. Who knows that? Aha!
Being good at lying is important.
But so is being honest.
Even though honesty takes far too long.
So we tell you now:
THIS IS NOT THE TITLE is about lying.
But we can’t promise you that’s the truth.
