Theatre The Sherling Studio

Overview

“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 premiered to a sell-out London run headlining ‘Come As You Are’ festival, the first festival celebrating trans, non-binary and gender-queer theatre.

The show was commissioned by the Camden People's Theatre Home Run Commission, through the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, and has also received support from the Arts Council England, Derby Theatre and The Bush Theatre.

Come As You Are Festival

A festival of trans, non-binary and gender queer theatre.

When did you come out as male? Or female? Camden People’s Theatre will be taking over our venue with a host of performances and workshops from gender-anarchists with more questions than answers.

In the last few years, progressive thinking about gender has gone mainstream, and understanding has developed of gender as infinite variety. More and more individuals are reclaiming the right to define their genders, their bodies, their selves. Following a hugely successful first edition in 2017, Come As You Are has been transformed into a pop up festival that will tour to venues across the UK. Headlined by the award-winning  show Bullish by Milk Presents, 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.
