TRUTHMACHINE is the multi-award-winning new social experiment from techno troublemakers, Counterpilot.

Using real biometric sensors and live voting systems, TRUTHMACHINE seeks out truth in a world of fake news and alternative facts.

Blurring the line between cutting edge-technology and live performance, TRUTHMACHINE is an intimate and playful experience for adventurous audiences.


This performance contains coarse language, sexual references and adult themes. Suitable for audiences 18+ years.
