Would you take a lie detector test with a stranger?
TRUTHMACHINE is the multi-award winning transmedial theatre experience x social experiment from techno trouble-makers, COUNTERPILOT.
TRUTHMACHINE is an intimate interactive performance for 12 patrons at a time, blurring the line between live performance and auditory/headphone theatre. Using real biometric sensors and live voting systems, TRUTHMACHINE seeks out truth in a world of fake news and alternative facts.
Take a seat, pull on your headphones and lean into the mic. Will you be the subject of our experiment? Sensors are tracking your pulse, your breathing and the moisture on your skin...Let's see if your heart rate can lie as effectively as our leaders can.
"Intimate, intense and interesting...a truly atmospheric experience”
