The Pleasure of Lying

  • Lower NZI Room, Aotea Centre 50 Mayoral Drive Auckland, Auckland, 1010 New Zealand (map)

“The Game (Le Jeu) allows things which are unbelievable and marvellous….The pleasure of lying will give your lies the appearance of truth. You will be believed. Theatre lives of this ‘lying truth...'
”Come’. the actor says to the character. “I’ll give you the light you need to exist. Follow me. I’ll enjoy my performance enough for everyone to think you exist. Be good” 
(Philippe Gaulier)

Over this last term, our Massive Nui Ensemble have been exploring how to create characters from a variety of sources; plays, letters, real people in ours lives or the lives' of others.
