“Don’t let the world put you in a box, but do reserve the right to make an exhibition of yourself!” Alice d’Lumiere 2019
Alice d’Lumiere generally prefers to go unnoticed; she wants to be an ordinary person on the train, or in the supermarket. She’s happy to be anonymous; a sensible, middle-aged woman…. However, she’s also a Writer, an Actor and a Performance Artist; and therefore cursed with an occasional, but irresistible desire to speak up, stand out and be utterly unmissable!
“Speaking Out and Fitting In” is a new work in verse and prose, with flashes of cabaret and burlesque, in which Alice playfully explores the wonderful, if occasionally counter-intuitive, position of the transgender / gender-fluid individual striving to both fit in to another gender whilst at the same time yearning to establish a unique, personal voice for themselves.
This is a show about how delightfully queer life can be when you decide to step beyond your birth gender.
WARNING: THIS SHOW MAY CONTAIN STOCKINGED LEGS AND TROCHAIC FEET!
