A true tale of love and transition told through the story of Pinocchio.

Join two artists on a fantastical journey through a real-life story as they make a new trans version of Pinocchio.

Set in a fictional film studio, you’re invited behind the scenes of Cade & MacAskill’s creative process and their relationship, to question what it takes to tell your truth.

Artists and lovers Rosana Cade and Ivor MacAskill have created The Making of Pinocchio alongside and in response to Ivor’s gender transition. In this playful theatrical and cinematic spectacular, their tender, complex autobiographical experience meets the magical story of the lying puppet who wants to be a ‘real boy’.

Time: 2.30pm, 7.30pm
