Split Britches Presents Stacy Makishi at La MaMa E.T.C.

As you probably know we are in residence at La Mama with 33 X 3, a program of works that reunites Split Britches in a celebration of La Mama’s 50th Anniversary.  Of course we want you to come see lots of things that weekend, but we really want to draw your attention to the very special performance by Stacy Makishi, The Making of Bull the True Story, April 18th and 19th at 7 pm.

Split Britches first met Stacy in early 1990’s at the University of Hawaii while we were in residence there. We were so impressed that we invited her to come work with us in NYC and subsequently London where she now lives and performs. We are delighted to bring her back to New York to perform her latest solo, The Making of Bull the True Story.

Stacy Makishi (7:00 pm) is on a double bill with Desiree Birch (8:30 pm). Tickets for each performance are $15  but you can see both for $20!!

PLUS, catch Desiree’s performance as part of Split Britches 33 X 3. Desiree was a student in the first Performance Studies class that Deb Margolin taught at Yale in 2001 and she considers Deb to be her artistic foremother. Deb helped Desiree get her first gigs as a solo performance artist in NYC and is proud to present 52 Man Pick Up as apart of our reunion at La Mama.

Please don’t miss this opportunity! We will be there to welcome you and share this incredible talent with you.

Xx Split Britches


About Split Britches

Split Britches was founded 30 years ago by Peggy Shaw, Lois Weaver and Deb Margolin. Since 1980 we have transformed the landscape of queer performance with our vaudevillian satirical gender-bending performance. Split Britches creates new forms by exploiting old conventions. It borrows from classical texts and popular myths, but its true sources are the details of everyday life. The work is personal, bordering on the private. It relies on moments rather than plot, relationships rather than story. It is about a community of outsiders, queers, eccentrics – feminist because it encourages the imaginative potential in everyone, and lesbian because it takes the presence of a lesbian on stage as a given.
