Presented by Brisbane Festival, Brisbane Powerhouse and Screen Queensland

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

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

Artists and lovers Rosana Cade and Ivor MacAskill have been creating The Making of Pinocchio since 2018, alongside and in response to Ivor’s gender transition. In this “funny, clever and thoughtful two-hander, rich in playful imagery” (The Guardian) their tender and complex autobiographical experience meets the magical story of the lying puppet who wants to be a ‘real boy’.

Recommended for ages 16+
