        and some additional music / sound design by <b>Daniel Thomas Freeman</b>


description



Have you ever told a Lie? Anaïs Nin led a complex life with many transgressions and secret affairs, and even managed to find herself married to two men simultaneously. In her journals, she documented her own fragmentation into Self and Other, and thinly disguised herself in her fiction as a spectrum of different characters.

An actress, a singer, two musicians and an electronic score form an ensemble to create a collage of music and words. Inspired by the surreal art films Nin performed in, 'The Lie Box' explores Nin’s life, the musical influences that threaded through it, and the uneasy ground between truth and fiction. As her composer brother, Joaquín put it:

'After all, reality is many layered. We peel off one layer only to discover that the process must be repeated. It is evident from the very beginning that Anais's heart went out to the intuitive, to the poetic, to the magic of subjectivity.'
