"[true] reminds us of the overwhelming sense of living in contemporary society.Asahi Newspaper

How do we really know what is true? Welcome to the surreal world of true, where our assumptions about time, space, sound and gravity are turned inside out. A spectacular collision of dance and technology, true is an extraordinary collaboration between three remarkable artists. Two artists from the internationally acclaimed multimedia performance company dumb type—lighting designer Takayuki Fujimoto and performer Takao Kawaguchi—team up with cutting-edge choreographer/dancer/video artist and winner at the 2006 Toyota Choreography Awards Tsuyoshi Shirai for a jaw-dropping revelation of lights, sound, video and the human body. With high-tech design sophistication and impeccable performance, true leads the audience through a shocking wonderland.
