Truth about lies

Stacy Makishi’s The Making Of Bull: The True Story tours to the University of Chichester on Thursday, November 24 at 7.30pm.

Andy Roberts, ShowRoom assistant, explains: “The Making of Bull: The True Story unravels mysteries… including the mysteries of why we make art and how our art makes us. It questions what’s real and what’s fake.

“Inspired by the film Fargo, which proclaims in its prologue, ‘This is a true story’, Stacy Makishi finally comes out and tells the whole truth as she brings forth an elliptical tale trying hard not to tell itself. Just what is she hiding? You’ll have to see it to believe it.

“Here lies a true story about lies, Fargo, maps, donut holes, murder, secrets, kidnaps and how to get lucky. It’s a tall tale and a love story that goes anywhere but straight. Part mystery, part satire, part How to Make A Performance…it’s about partings and the absence that defines us. The Making of Bull: The True Story is a fusion of physical theatre, music, film and text. The stage is a battleground between truth and lies; what’s spoken and what’s omitted; what’s fiction and what is documentary.”

Andy added: “Hawaii-born Stacy Makishi works in a variety of media including site-specific installations, video, new writing, physical theatre and live art. She is artistic director of runt, a multi-media company that celebrates creativity and collaboration and hosts international workshops.

“The company is committed to producing intelligent, challenging works that appeal to the widest community possible.”
