“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 transmasculine gender and identity. This show drops a proverbial bull into a china shop and hopes it breaks everything.

“Bullish takes real care in communicating slippery ideas… a celebration of choice that never loses sight of the struggle of choosing, but lays the scope of options out in full sight.” – What’s On Stage

“There is both a playfulness and richness in the way the company invert and reassemble old stories. It is compelling and often moving to watch a cast intent on chiselling new stories out of old, and in the process throwing off outmoded constraints and embracing their new, constantly evolving identities.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
