Stacy Makishi – VesperTime


Stacy Makishi returns to Chelsea Theatre with the world premiere of VesperTime.


Makishi delves into the undercurrents of Moby Dick, Hitchcock and Bjork’s album Vespertine to create a striking new work where performance meets rock concert meets subversive sermon. VesperTime tackles Makishi’s one-time wish to become a missionary and offers up a ‘vesper’, a secular evening prayer shot through with her characteristic wit.

VesperTime was developed with the support of the National Theatre Studio and commissioned by Chelsea Theatre and Colchester Arts Centre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Produced by Artsadmin.


Stacy Makishi is a transplant from Hawaii who found paradise in Dalston, London in 1993. After graduating from the University of Hawaii she worked as a stand-up comic at the Comedy Store. But when her punchlines punched back, Stacy found herself happiest when making what New Yorkers called Performance. Stacy is now known across the UK and internationally for her bold, compassionate and humorous work.
