Vivek Shraya

How to Fail as a Popstar

Vivek Shraya is a Canadian artist whose body of work crosses the boundaries of music, literature and film and who actively resists gender classification. Her works polarise audiences and strike a nerve and her 2018 book I’m Afraid of Men has become a bestseller.

How to Fail as a Popstar is her theatrical debut, a glamorous, one personality stage show crossing all genres as well as a reflection on the power of pop culture and the quest to be yourself. Vivek Shraya encourages her audience to rethink gender and identity in the 21st century.
