INFO

In a forest of real wood and fake wood, and real fake wood, and fake real wood, join the cast, crew and creators as they construct Pinocchio over and over again, shaking the boundaries between possible and impossible, reality and fantasy. Turning wood into flesh, boys into donkeys, and making that nose grow... the tricks of the trade will be revealed before your very eyes.

Artists and lovers Rosana Cade and Ivor MacAskill have been making The Making of Pinocchio since 2018, alongside and in response to Ivor’s gender transition. Glimpsed through a fictionalised making process, the artists’ real autobiographical experience meets the magical story of the little lying puppet who wants to be a real boy.

This iteration of The Making of Pinocchio for Take Me Somewhere 2021 was designed as a special one-off digital performance and will be re-worked and toured as a live performance from Spring 2022.
