You mustn’t LIE!
Everyone knows that, don’t they?!


Isn’t lying... your imagination bubbling over?
An anti-boredom machine?
Or just a way to stop being sad or frightened?
In other words, isn’t lying... a superpower?

And by the way... are adults always honest themselves?

In the new production by De Nwe Tijd and hetpaleis, we plunge into the wonderful world of lies. We follow three young actors who discover what lies are, all the things you can do with them, but also how you can get lost in them. Three musicians accompany them, and there is a bouncy castle that grows with every lie that is told in the theatre. Until it bursts.

LIEGEN is a story full of tension, jokes and, above all, an ‘ode to the imagination’. A production that hurtles through your belly like a mini rollercoaster. Particularly suitable for children aged 6 years and over who
sometimes like to bend the truth.
