"May There Always Be Sunshine" is a very popular Soviet song. The word whistle in Russian is synonymous with lie. In this performance I use artistic whistling as a metaphor. The Soviet world and the Soviet myth are great whistles and beautiful lies about an extraordinary future. The whistle was sometimes so talented, created by geniuses sometimes, that it eclipsed reality and people wept under these songs from Soviet films, admired Metrostroy, etc., and were ready to die for the Soviet homeland. What was truth and what was just a whistle?
