The Illusion of Truth


How far would you go to achieve your hearts desire?

A powerful, heartbreaking search for the truth!

Enter a world where Gods feast, dance and wander through forests. Reaching into the pantheon of Orishas (Deities of Ifa), performance storyteller Mara Menzies explores our relationship with truth, intention and powerlessness wrapped in the thin cloak of power. How does society control its decision-making when exposed to so many alternative facts? A young man obsessed with joining the ranks of deities, seizes an opportunity to appease himself to the Gods.

An innocent misunderstanding leads to disastrous consequences when seemingly justifiable actions are taken without full knowledge of the facts.
