In this performance, accompanied by experimental music, Marshalore is walking across a darkened stage. She is holding a lamp in her hands, which she alternately shines on her body and the décor (a tent made of white fabric). Meanwhile, she is uttering passages such as: 'What I say to you is not true' and 'what I say to you is true'. The combined action of text, experimental music, décor, light, and Marshalore’s body, give the act the mythical charge that the title implies.
