“Racism and othering undermine whole swaths of people at the most fundamental levels of identity and belonging. The One Truthiness seeks to bring people together as we are, with our strengths and wounds.”

Event Description

The One Truthiness is a participatory performance series featuring a painting created in melted wax on glass set to a story read by you. The text is constructed of first-person quotes of Black and white lived experiences, illuminating our best intentions and our deepest hurts — providing a snapshot of this moment in time, what we desire, and where our sticking points are.

The One Truthiness claims that we are all in the world together, even when we live in worlds with different rules — and leaves the conclusions to you.

Hold others’ words in your mouths while you see something you’ve never seen before.

In this time of history,

  • Who do you trust?
  • What does it take to earn yours?
  • Can we trust “the other?”

Rated PG. Highly recommended parents and kids participate together from the same device. Children have participated as young as 6.

This will be an intimate Zoom experience with a post-show conversation that is as important as the art. Join in creating something together. 

Timing: 15 minutes building community. 60 minutes performance. 45 minutes discussion.

Participants will be expected to read aloud in English from the screen. Please find a quiet environment to attend.

Accessibility needs — please contact charlie@onetruthiness.com and we will work with you to make the experience rewarding and connected.
