Welcome to Beast, a comedy by world-famous transgender performer, Krishna Istha. Just kidding, trans people don't get to be world famous, that's not how this works.
Directed by the inimitable Zoe Coombs Marr, Beast is a comedic exploration into the life of a trans person in 2019 – what it means to be trans 'masculine' without becoming the men you hate and how taking testosterone can transform you into a 'beast'.
Using avant-garde comedy and experimental theatre, this show tackles issues of stereotypes, hormone replacement therapy, sexual fluidity and the reality of living while trans, head on with heart and humour.
This event is part of BODY, a new major project from Arts House in partnership with Midsumma Festival, amplifying the voices of trans, gender diverse and intersex peoples.
