“SPEAKING OUT & FITTING IN”


Alice d’Lumiere generally prefers to go unnoticed; she wants to be an ordinary woman on the train, or in the supermarket; she's happy to be anonymous. However, she's also a performer; cursed with an occasional, but irresistible desire to speak up, stand out and ultimately become the Fairy on top of the Tree. “Speaking Out and Fitting In” is a work in verse and prose, with flashes of cabaret, performance poetry, and a touch of burlesque, in which Alice explores whether a woman really can have her cake and jump out of it...


Through this work, she will be exploring the wonderful and occasionally counter-intuitive, position of the transgender / gender-fluid individual striving to both fit in to another gender through non-verbal forms of communication, whilst at the same time needing to establish a unique, personal voice for themselves.
