Stacy Makishi’s STAY! continues to evolve following presentations at the Lyric Hammersmith, the Greenroom in Manchester and The Showroom Chichester in 2008. This highly visual piece draws its inspiration from the paintings of Paula Rego, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Lassie Come Home. A dinner party has had one drink too many and now Elizabeth Taylor lifts the petticoats of a love affair that has gone to the dogs. Film noir coincides with Pet Rescue in this hilarious examination of co-dependence, malicious domination and the subversion of the natural order.
Although darker than Makishi's 2007 solo piece, Bull: The True Story, Stay! is also shot through with her cheeky humour and eye for the bizarre Abi Bliss, Metrolife
