"Our earth, our cities, our houses are sinking, we need to recycle, that is the truth!"
Pravda, the Russian word for "truth", was a major newspaper during the Soviet Union. It served as an official publication for the Communist Party between 1912 and 1991.
There are differing claims as to what constitutes truth, how to define truth and whether truth is subjective, relative, objective or absolute. Through dance text and form, the performance PRAVDA focuses on how human beings adapt their definitions of truth and reality.
The scenography is a sinking house made entirely of old window frames, presenting the psychological space of the performance.
