“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 stark night, one cabaret odyssey, one strapping search for the man they might want to be.
BULLISH pits ancient mythology against modern gender navigation to furiously disrupt, traverse and rewrite the rule book. 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 is the recipient of Camden People's Theatre and Jerwood Charitable Foundation Home Run Commission. The development of BULLISH has been generously supported by Arts Council England, Derby Theatre and The Bush Theatre.
"The seed commission has made me feel supported, not just as an artist but also a woman of colour whose story needs to be heard."
