It’s All True  is an opera-in-suspension based on the complete live archives of iconic underground band Fugazi. Grounded upon the DC post-hardcore outfit’s 1987-2002 Live Archive series, the work uses only the incidental music, text and sounds, none of Fugazi’s actual songs. An obsessive leap into 1500 hours of gig detritus – random feedback, aimless drum noodling, pre-show activist speeches, audience hecklers, police breaking up gigs – forms the foundation of an ear-body-and-mind-flossing 100 minutes for 4 voices/performers, 4 electric guitars/basses and 2 drummers. It’s All True is overloaded, maddening, mundane, properly funny, and a radical incitement to action.

About Object Collection:
Object Collection was founded in 2004 by writer/director Kara Feely and composer/musician Travis Just. Based in Brooklyn, the group operates within the intersecting practices of performance, experimental music and theater. We are concerned with simultaneity, complexity, and radicality, combining dense layers of text, notation, objects, and processes. We work to give audiences unconventional viewing experiences through our merging of theatricality and pedestrian activity. Our works upset habitual notions of time, pace, progression and virtuosity. We value accumulation above cohesion.

About Co-Lab Projects:
Co-Lab Projects is an artist-run nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources, education, and exhibition space to artists that produce contemporary works of art, installation, and performance. Through collaboration and engagement, Co-Lab Projects encourages artistic exploration and dialogue within the community.

This project is produced in proud partnership with Vault Fine Art ServicesStateside at the Paramount, and Fusebox Festival. Artist accommodations sponsored in part by Native Experiential Hostels.  

This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
