Following Stacy Makishi throughout the development of her “final” show The Falsettos, filmmaker Claire Nolan allows the audience to experience the world of performance art first hand. The Making of the Falsettos is a personal portrait of an artist in praxis. The documentary is an insightful, often emotional, always honest, testimony of the workings of Makishi.The 40 minute film includes performance documentation and workshops, as well as talking head interviews with artists Lois Weaver, Peggy Shaw, Joshua Sofaer and Vick Ryder. The Making of the Falsettos has been screened post-performance, both in the UK and internationally.

 

The film won an award for Best Performance Art/Live Art Film at the Bornshorts International Short Film Festival, Denmark 2014.
