Stacy Makishi

Stacy Makishi is a transplant from Hawaii who found paradise in East London. Like a bonsai plant, Stacy is small but old. She has been making art for over 30 years. A cross-fertilisation of theatre, comedy, film and visual art, her work is as complex as it is accessible; humorous as it is challenging; visual as it is literate. It ranges across solo performances for stage, large-scale outdoor participatory projects and intimate one-to-ones. Also a teacher, director and mentor, Stacy believes in art’s transformative power and strives to share her creative process with others in order to put more aloha into the world.
