FRIDAY 03rd of JUNE & SATURDAY 04th of June AT 5pm
Working Title Situation _ Workspace Brussels
SHORT OF LYING
a few thoughts on public speaking, the big Pharma, baboons, Scientology, universal connectedness,
a certain Brazilian car-wash, and why everyone should eat an avocado everyday

Together, we’ll also test your pseudo-profound bullshit receptivity!
SHORT OF LYING will perhaps not surprise you, but guide you through a series of anecdotes that try to address a question as old as Methuselah:
"Why is bullshit unavoidable whenever circumstances require someone to talk without knowing what he is talking about?”
