Come As You Are Festival – Milk Presents: Bullish
Headlining Camden People’s Theatre COME AS YOU ARE Festival in conjunction with Metal Peterborough
“I am a bull. I am a bull…ish. I live between worlds. Slip between myths with dexterous leaps. Do I scare you? How about now?”
Meet Asterion, better known as the terrifying, blood thirsty Minotaur of Ancient Crete. Follow them through one cabaret odyssey, one strapping search for the man they might want to be.
From the makers of smash hit JOAN (Off West End, Fringe First and Stage Award winner) Milk Presents bring you BULLISH. BULLISH pits ancient mythology against modern gender navigation to furiously disrupt, traverse and rewrite the rulebook. Stepping into the ring with a gender fierce ensemble of hopers and renegades, BULLISH is a story about packing, passing, and gambling your way out of the labyrinth.
A new mythical play with songs, negotiating ancient and new territories in trans-masculine gender and identity. This show drops a proverbial bull into a china shop and hopes it breaks everything.
BULLISH headlines COME AS YOU ARE Festival 2018. A pop up festival of trans, non-binary and gender queer theatre commissioned by Camden People’s Theatre.
Featuring work by the UK’s most exciting theatre companies alongside a workshop, panel discussion and a scratch night from local artists, the festival will celebrate and interrogate all the world’s issues regarding female, male, between and beyond.
It’s not going to be pretty – but it might just be beautiful.
