“a radical message in a populist show, wringing new meanings from an ancient myth”
Whats on Stage
“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 a cabaret odyssey in 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.
A retelling of the Minotaur myth, BULLISH presents the complexity of gender identity in the contemporary world within a universal narrative.
BULLISH was a Home Run Commission by Camden People’s Theatre & the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. It has also received support from the Arts Council England, Derby Theatre and the Bush Theatre.

“This went on for far, far too long: it felt like a nasty, overly violent and unpleasant 5 minutes of constant spitting and shoving, and the resulting mess, smell and atmosphere was just vomit-inducing.” – Fringe Review
