Becoming a real boy in a post truth world
Cade & MacAskill, formed of artist duo Rosana Cade and Ivor MacAskill, are creating a semi-autobiographical response to the story of Pinocchio from a queer trans perspective. Using video diaries, playful scenography, sound and choreography, The Making of Pinocchio will be a rich multi-layered theatrical experience designed for large stages.
Cade & MacAskill are collaborating with artist/designer Tim Spooner and sound designer Yas Clarke to experiment with re-creating queer fantasy on stage.
The current co-producers are Tramway/Take Me Somewhere (Glasgow), Fierce Festival (Birmingham) and Kampnagel (Hamburg), alongside lead producers Artsadmin. The premiere is planned for Take Me Somewhere Festival in Glasgow in May 2021.
The Making of Pinocchio is currently in R&D phase and we are looking for other international co-producers to help us develop this ambitious project and present the work from autumn 2021 onwards.
