Three To See on 12 Sep: Bullish, Testosterone, Staged – The Colour Of The Sun

And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

Bullish | Camden People’s Theatre | 12-30 Sep (pictured)
This is what I think one could regard as the ‘flagship event’ of CPT’s Come As You Are festival, which focuses on gender and reflects the current, progressive conversation about it. ‘Bullish’ is the work of Milk Presents – previously responsible for the excellent ‘Joan’, which made a splash at edfringe this summer – and it seems to be kind of based on the Minotaur story, mixing ancient mythology with modern gender navigation. Described as a “cabaret odyssey”, it’s performed by Krishna Istha, Cairo Nevitt, Lucy Jane Parkinson, and Amelia Stubberfield. Info here.

Testosterone | New Diorama | 12-16 Sep
Like the previous show, ‘Testosterone’ also takes a look at gender, this one through the experiences of of Kit Redstone, who transitioned from female to male in his early thirties, and has therefore experienced adult life from two rather different perspectives. A very interesting sounding piece of physical theatre from the hugely acclaimed Rhum and Clay. See the venue website here for more information.

Staged – The Colour Of The Sun | Jacksons Lane | 12-16 Sep
Experimental circus collective Circumference present their latest theatrical spectacle: “Featuring three performers on an aerial platform as precarious as our perceptions. A single action changes everything, but everything is not always what it seems. After all, everyone knows the colour of the sun – don’t you?” Head this way for details.
