Come As You Are Festival

Camden People's Theatre
Studio Theatre , Plays and Drama
Friday 12 October 2018 - Sunday 14 October 2018

A festival of trans, non-binary and gender queer theatre

When did you come out as male? Or female? Camden People’s Theatre will be taking over Derby Theatre with a host of performances and workshops from gender-anarchists with more questions than answers. 

In the last few years, progressive thinking about gender has gone mainstream, and understanding has developed of gender as infinite variety. More and more individuals are reclaiming the right to define their genders, their bodies, their selves. Following a hugely successful first edition in 2017, Come As You Are has been transformed into a pop-up festival that will tour to venues across the UK. 

Headlined by Bullish by Milk Presents, the makers of smash-hit Joan (Off West End, Fringe First and Stage Award winner) pit 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. 

Come As You Are festival will celebrate and interrogate all the world’s issues regarding female, male, between and beyond. It’s not going to be pretty – but it might just be beautiful.

The festival kicks off with a PERFORMANCE AND DEVISING WORKSHOP on FRIDAY 5 OCTOBER at 6:30pm.
