About: Beast by Krishna Istha

Part stand-up comedy and part performance art, Krishna Istha's Beast, directed by Zoe Coombs Marr (AUS), is a comedic exploration into the life of a trans person in 2019, what it means to be trans "masculine" without becoming the men we hate, and how taking testosterone can transform you into a social renegade: a beast.

Using avant-garde comedy and experimental live art practices, Istha tackles issues of stereotypes, hormone replacement therapy, sexual fluidity and the reality of living while trans head on with heart and humour.

Beast is commissioned by the City of Melbourne through Arts House, was developed through CultureLAB and is supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
