How can the media manipulate reality?

'Short of Lying' is situated in the conflicting world of online publishing, which since the ‘90s has appropriated storytelling and narrative thinking to serve neoliberal logics. It is a performance piece about storytelling. About the power stories have to frame and manipulate reality. The lecture is about deception and shows how communication media hijacked narrative thinking. In the form of a TEDTalk, Short of Lying exposes different mechanisms of manipulation to create a playful tension between deception and awareness.

"Short of Lying laat dan wel op zeer slinkse wijze zien en voelen hoe we ons, ondanks het einde van de Grote Verhalen, nog steeds graag en makkelijk laten infecteren door het virus van (mini-)narratieven"

Luanda Casella is een Braziliaanse schrijfster en performer. Ze woont en werkt sinds 2006 in België. Ze specialiseert zich in storytelling en is een verteller die met chirurgische precisie weet bloot te leggen wat niet verteld wordt. Onlangs studeerde ze af aan het KASK waar ze onderzoek deed naar de rol van literatuur in het ontwikkelen van het kritische denken en het opsporen van onzin in de media. Dit onderzoek mondde uit in enkele monologen en jazz-storytelling performances.
