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

This “ravishingly beautiful’ (The Arts Desk) show is for anyone seeking to explore the sheer joy and limitless potential of queer imagination. Audiences called it ‘unmissable’, ‘breath-taking’, ‘phenomenal’, ‘showstopping’ and ‘the queer love story of the year’.

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’.

Set in a fictional film studio, you are invited to go behind the scenes of Cade & MacAskill’s creative process and their relationship, and question what it takes to tell your truth.The show constantly shifts between fantasy and authenticity, humour and intimacy, on stage and on screen.

Language: English, with english subtitles

Access information:

Visual interpretation Wednesday 15 May at 19.00
Visual interpretation is a description of the visual information that is otherwise available through the sense of sight. In connection with a performance, the visual interpreter's task is to describe the visual expression of the performance so that the audience with visual impairments can experience and interpret a more faceted art experience. Headsets for this experience will be available at the box office.

Relaxed performances on Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 May at 19.00
Relaxed performances accommodate anyone who finds standard theatre performances and the typical labels of being in the theatre overwhelming and uncomfortable. Such facilitation means that Rosendal Teater and the actors on stage take a relaxed attitude to movement and sounds coming from the audience, audience members can come and leave the theatre whenever they wish, latecomers are allowed, and you can go out and spend time in our relaxed zone during the show if you need to.

Hearing protection is available to borrow at our box office.

The performance is subtitled, including descriptions of sound and music, in both Norwegian and English.

There is step-free access to the performance.

During and after both performances, Oliver, from FRI Trøndelag and Transhjelpen, will be present to give out information, listen to and have a conversation with those who need it.
