Sincerely yours is dedicated to the art of lying. The piece, created and performed by Francesco Scavetta and Sanna Myllylahti, is based on questions about truth and lies in the context of performing art. The piece takes place in a world where the artificial aims to be real and the reality seems weirdly unnatural. The performers relate to the audience in a direct, unfiltered way, sharing comments about the act of performing while charmingly fooling the observer.
