Would you take a lie detector test with a room full of strangers? And would you tell the truth? Are you up for the multi-award-winning new social experiment from techno-trouble makers Counterpilot?

Using real biometric sensors and live voting systems, Truthmachine seeks out truth in a world of fake news and alternative facts. The polygraph machine used to be regarded as a legal instrument, but today we think we can cheat it. Let’s see if your heart rate can lie as effectively as our leaders can.

Blurring the line between cutting edge technology and live performance, Truthmachine is an intimate, playful and intriguing theatre experience for adventurous audiences from the team that brought Avoidable Perils to Festival Park in 2020. Part social experiment, part play, part immersive multimedia experience, it will leave you thinking long after it’s over.
