The Comforter by 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 church. Exchanging psalms and sacrament for 80’s/90’s pop culture, it draws inspiration from Twin Peaks and Ingmar Bergman and throws a kiss to George Michael.
 
The Comforter follows the powerfully moving and absurdly humorous Vesper Time (“a gorgeous hymn…for fearlessness, truth and love” Exeunt) that toured the UK. Together they make up the first two in a three-show series about the Holy Trinity. The Comforter is the Holy Ghost of the trio and it asks the question: ‘What am I unwilling to feel?’
 
Stacy is a multi-award winning artist who has been making work for 30 years. Join her to explore through meditation, ritual and disco what it means to be fully alive and fully human.
 
Commissioned by The Yard Theatre, Marlborough Theatre, Norwich Arts Centre and Colchester Arts Centre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and produced by Artsadmin.
