An investigation takes place on stage. The subject is called ‘Damir Todorović’, born in Vršac, Serbia. Damir wants to confront his past, hooked up to a lie detector machine. Did certain things really happen, or are they just the product of his imagination? As It Is examines the categories of true and false as important social issues, especially in European transition countries facing identity crises – a performance about acting in everyday life, truth and fiction, authenticity and totalitarianism. Can we live without lies, or are they desirable?
