#A true tale of love and transition told through the story of Pinocchio
Artists and lovers Rosana Cade and Ivor MacAskill invite you inside their creative process and relationship through a poignant reimagining of Pinocchio’s quest to become a ‘real boy’.
Created alongside and in response to Ivor’s transition, The Making of Pinocchio is set inside a fictional film studio where autobiography and fairy tale collide. Experimenting with live feeds and forced perspectives, this thrilling tale intertwines a tender and intricate exploration of identity, authenticity, and acceptance with multi-layered a universe oscillating between the real and the fantastical.
