A live, 15 min, one to one encounter on the phone with performance artist Stacy Makishi.
Winter’s coming and surf’s up! Will there be a ‘Second Wave’? A second coming? A sequel?
Homeward (house) Bound will help you couch-surf your way through the second wave, rip curl uncertainty and barrel the Big Kahuna.
Close encounters with household appliances, a toaster, the kettle, a light switch, will be charged with gravity and magic. Familiar actions like opening a window becomes a moment of transformation; an epiphany along the road to redemption.
Homeward (house) Bound will set your heart free.
Thursday 5 November – Saturday 7 November. Price: Pay What You Can (Suggested price £15)
Stacy Makishi is a transplant from Hawaii who found paradise in Dalston, London in 1994. Like a bonsai plant, Stacy is small but old. She has been making art for over 30 years. A cross-fertilization of theatre, comedy, film and visual art, her work is as complex as it is accessible; humorous as it is challenging; visual as it is literate. It ranges across solo performances for stage, large-scale outdoor participatory projects and intimate one-to-ones. Also a teacher, director and mentor in international demand, Makishi believes in art’s transformative power and strives to share her creative process with others in order to put more aloha into the world. She was the guest director on Yellow Earth’s inaugural Manchester Performers Academy in 2020. Find out more about Stacy.
