It’s just over a week until Krishna Istha performs at (The Progressive Arts Institution prefers) The Circus of the Oppressed on Tuesday 2nd July!
Krishna Istha is a London based performer, writer, live artist and theatre maker. Their practice looks at transformations (physical/political/collaborative), gender politics & queer culture using subversive text, cabaret elements & comedy. They have performed extensively across the UK, Germany, Australia and USA in works that span across theatre, opera, comedy and performance art.
Krishna’s most recent solo show, Beast, directed by Barry Award winning comedian Zoe Coombs Marr, is a trans stand-up comedy show, a self-help comedy for the oppressed.
