Striking performance poetry, disarming comedy, and a celebration of Gender Fluidity from a part-time Transwoman playfully establishing her voice.
Alice d’Lumiere generally prefers to go unnoticed. She wants to be an ordinary person on the train. She's happy to be anonymous, sensible, middle-aged woman. However, she's also a Poet and Performance Artist, and cursed with an occasional but irresistible desire to speak up, stand out and sometimes be the fairy on top of the Christmas tree!
This is a show in verse and prose, with flashes of cabaret and aerial burlesque, in which Alice playfully explores her wonderful, occasionally counter-intuitive position, striving to both fit into another gender, whilst at the same time yearning to establish a unique, personal voice for herself.
'Speaking Out and Fitting In!' is a celebratory show about how delightfully queer life can be when you decide to step beyond your birth gender.
"Playful, kind, occasionally bawdy, but always considerate, 'Speaking Out and Fitting In!' is a one-person show that fluidly moves through gender and identity, exploring (and occasionally exploding) preconceptions... Alice d'Lumiere wears their contradictions and complexity with verve and style." (Oxford Daily Info)
