Fraudulent Behaviour uses prose, invisible friends, a decoy duck and cardboard cut-outs to create a witty and thoughtful performance in response to Nietzsche’s assertion “We need lies in order to live…”
Fraudulent Behaviour is a philosophically playful exploration of everyday lies and self-deception.
The narrative unfolds using spoken word, movement and a series of objects that play with notions of what may be perceived as real. Inherent in the work is a humorous use of language, both in delivery and writing style.
Ideas, themes and content loop back on themselves to create a dense and evocative theatrical experience.
Conceptually, Dennis plays with notions of time and space, interweaving real and imagined worlds to create a compelling and insightful performance about the illusory nature of life.
Supported by – Fraudulent Behaviour is toured by Performing Lines for Mobile States, a national touring initiative supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. Fraudulent Behaviour has been co-commissioned by Arnolfini, UK, the Bluecoat, UK and Performance Space, Sydney with support from Department of Performance Studies USYD and Bundanon Artist Trust.
