Vesper Time tackles themes of paternal absence, poignant memories and mourning through a heart-warming combination of soul searching, humour and absurd home truths.
Touching upon undercurrents and contrasts of death and forgiveness, Stacy references Moby Dick whilst utilising MTV pop songs as hymn books, delivering her signature take on some favourite Hollywood blockbusters.
Vesper Time is a subversive sermon, delivered with characteristic quirkiness and a ‘Vesper' - a secular evening prayer.
Bull: The True Story
Bull : The True Story is a solo show for theatre spaces by Stacy Makishi with original music by Paul Clark and Gareth Fry.
The piece draws inspiration from the film Fargo. A powerful fusion of physical theatre, music, film and text.
The stage is a battleground between truth and lies; what’s spoken and what’s omitted; between fiction and documentary.
Part shamanistic ritual, part subversive sermon, part game show, part lecture demonstration, The Comforter has the provocative quality of an intimate one to one performance and a rowdy revivalist rally. This highly participatory-performance-rite-of passage reclaims spirituality and proposes a new perspective on church.
Loosely based upon the films of Ingmar Bergman’s ‘Faith’ Trilogy, the piece touches upon holy ‘penetration’, missionary style and what it means to be fully human.
