We think we see an unlimited number of colours in nature, but in fact  
our brain sensory functions combine only three light waves. We take  
the illusion of colours for reality when, in truth, this assumed  
reality is a mental construct, one of many generated by ourselves day- 
by-day, minute-by-minute. When these processes are clearly  
demonstrated, we may re-examine our relationship to the world we  
thought was predetermined.

"true" is a new sound, light and dance performance that explores the  
relationship between the brain and the reality we face. true also  
looks at new possibilities of and evolution in sound, lighting and  
performance, made possible only with today’s technology.

Performed by dancer-choreographers Tsuyoshi Shirai and Takao  
Kawaguchi, this poetic journey is a sensory experience in which the  
use of high-technology devices such as LED lights, oscillators and  
myoelectric sensors creates a highly enhanced sound and light  
experience, and the theatre space becomes a flickering and vibrating  
extension of the performers’ bodies.
"true" was premiered in September 2007 at Japan’s Yamaguchi  
Center for Arts and Media [YCAM] by 10 artists from different fields  
under the direction of Takayuki Fujimoto of Kyoto collective Dumb  
Type. The collaborators include dancer and winner of the Toyota  
Choreography Awards 2006 ,Tsuyoshi Shirai of AbsT/baneto, dancer  
Takao Kawaguchi of Dumb Type, last seen in D.D.D. in The Studios last  
year, music composer Daito Manabe and visual, video and visual  
designer Takuya Minami. This will be the premiere performance of true  
outside of Japan.
