The Comforter

Stacy Makishi  

Part ritual, part prayer, part rowdy revivalist rally, The Comforter is a rite of passage that reclaims spirituality and proposes a new perspective on the church. Exchanging psalms and sacrament for 80s and 90s pop culture, it draws inspiration from ‘Twin Peaks’ and Ingmar Bergman whilst throwing a kiss to George Michael.

The Comforter follows the powerfully moving and absurdly humorous Vesper Time, forming the first two parts in a trilogy about the Holy Trinity. The Comforter is the Holy Ghost of the trio and asks the question: “What am I unwilling to feel?”
