TRUTH OR DARE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE GENEROSITY OF THE DANISH ART
COUNCIL- DaNY ARTS
TRUTH OR DARE is part of a series of events to be produced in New York
City by the art collective, TROJAN HORSE INTERNATIONAL (Copenhagen/New
York), that explore the political and ethical relationship between
Europe and the United States.
Truth: What is the capital of Finland?
Dare: Sing your national anthem as loud as possible.
Truth: Do you see your own opinion as more important than the majority?
Dare: Do a strip number.
Truth: Do you believe in angels?
Dare: Pray out loud for someone in the audience.
Truth: What do you wish to be done with your body when you die?
Dare: Perform your death scene.
TRUTH OR DARE is a durational performance work based on 1000 questions
and dares composed by the group Trojan Horse International, and boils
the situation of performer and spectator down to its essence. The
piece lasts four hours, and the audience is free to come and go
throughout the duration of the show.
Played by two teams representing Europe and the United States, TRUTH
OR DARE uses the universal teenage game to challenge stereotypical
views on culture, and question the spectator’s own relationship to a
cultural identity. There are limitless narratives that arise out of
the juxtaposition of various truths and dares, and through the act of
attempting to answer or perform, the limits of human knowledge and
physical existence begin to unravel.
As new questions and dares unfold, the mood of the room can change
from intellectual theorizing about sex, politics, and religion – to
embarrassingly comic interludes – to harsh interrogation and
humiliation. This is the stuff that nations are made of.
