A brown-skinned trans woman with blonde-streaked hair and a red bindi, holding a microphone and standing in front of a wall covered in colourful vinyl records.

Illuminating, raw, honest and hopeful, How to Fail as a Popstar is Vivek’s debut theatrical work, chronicling her journey to “not quite” pop music superstardom. A reflection on the power of pop culture, dreams, disappointments and self-determination, this astonishing performance is a triumph in finding one’s authentic voice.
