Dates and Times
Thur 8 - Sat 10 Nov 2018 at Various Times
A festival of trans, non-binary and gender queer theatre.
When did you come out as male? Or female? Camden People’s Theatre is partnering with Metal and Vivacity Key in Peterborough to take over the venues with a host of performances and workshops from gender-anarchists with more questions than answers.
It’s not going to be pretty – but it might just be beautiful.

Come As You Are Scratch Night

A night of explosive new work from local trans, non binary and gender queer artists. Our Come As You Are Festival Scratch event will feature three 20 minute work-in-progress performances of new ideas in development. Join us and discover new work, by local artists, interrogating and celebrating gender from cis to trans, from binary to beyond.
Fri 9 Nov | 6pm – METAL | BOOK TICKETS
This is a show about the slippery nature of identities the ones you give yourself, the ones forced onto you and the ones that were once strong and now you are just clinging on to. More specifically it’s a show about breasts, gender and using urinals. But mostly it is about baring all.
Fri 9 Nov | 7.45pm & Sat 10 Nov | 3pm – VIVACITY KEY
“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?”
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.
★★★★ ‘A radical message in a populist show, wringing new meanings from an ancient myth’ What’s On Stage
Non-Binary Electro Hour

“What are you if you’re not a man or a woman, when the world forces you to be one or the other?
And what does drag even mean if you’re not a king or a queen?
Also…how can I make this into a musical?”
Non-Binary Electro Hour brings together noise about queer life, and desire for queer/trans bodies, with a brief punk history of drag outside the boxes – from queer stars of stage and screen to the gender-bending icons of today. Expect songs, sci fi, strip-tease, and spoken word. This modern-day revue is a messed up take on what it’s like to be in-between categories. Non-Binary Electro Hour sold out its first two runs at Camden Peoples’ Theatre. Now it goes on tour for more celebrations of gender variance and fantasy.
