The Making of Bull: The True Story

Artist/Author: Stacy Makishi | Reference: D1539 | Type: DVD

Programme notes:‘Let's get this straight folks, Bull: The True Story was a pack of lies, a cover up, it was a performance set up to upstage the truth.' The Making of Bull: The True Story unravels mysteries…including the mysteries of why we make art and how our art makes us. It questions what's real and what's fake. Inspired by the film Fargo, which proclaims in its prologue, ‘This is a true story', Hawaii-born Makishi finally comes out and tells the whole truth as she brings forth an elliptical tale trying hard not to tell itself. Just what is she hiding? You'll have to see it to believe it. Stacy Makishi is a Chelsea Theatre Associate Artist. Preceded by a short performance by an early career artist on the bar stage. Post show Q&A with the artist. This item is part of the Study Room Guide On shit, piss, blood, sweat and tears by Lois Keidan (P2195)
