Presented by Milk Presents
Commissioned by CPT and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation
“I am a minotaur and I am dangerous to those I love. I don’t mean to make anyone feel uncomfortable, that’s not my intention, but facts are what they are.”
Milk Presents drop a bull into a gender shop and hope it breaks everything. A wild show about not taming the minotaur within.
In BULLISH, ancient mythology meets modern gender negotiation. Inspired by Ovid’s Minotaur, a gender fierce ensemble of hopers and renegades try to pass, pack and blag their way out of the labyrinth.
BULLISH is the recipient of Camden People’s Theatre and Jerwood Charitable Foundation Home Run Commission and will premiere at Camden People’s Theatre in September 2017 for a three-week run. The development of BULLISH has been generously supported by Arts Council England and Derby Theatre.
Milk Presents’ Production Manager Al Orange shares some thoughts about the development of Bullish and finding their Minotaur. Read here.
