Milk Presents: Bullish

Date:Wed 07 Nov
Time:7.30pm
Venue:J2
Price:£12.50 (£8 con)

Join an ensemble of queer, trans and drag performers for this cabaret-inflected take on the story of the Minotaur. BULLISH uses the Ancient Greek myth to explore contemporary identity and our fear of otherness. 

BULLISH is the story of Theseus and the Minotaur re-molded and transformed by Milk Presents. A gender fierce ensemble of hopers and renegades pass, pack and blag their way out of the Labyrinth, re-defining the myths that shape our identity. The Minotaur, a creature who is half-man and half-bull, lives alone within a complex and cavernous Labyrinth. That is until Theseus arrives, a young warrior set on killing the minotaur at all costs. A tale of treachery, power and love, hell bent on not taming the minotaur within. 

Milk Presents are Ruby Glaskin, Adam Robertson and Lucy J Skilbeck. The company’s work often explores gender using stories from history and mythology.
