“SPEAKING OUT & FITTING IN”
Alice d'Lumiere is chipping away at the early stages of a new work, through a series of short form “Scratch” performances at a diverse cross-section of exciting venues. Through this work, in verse and prose, she will be exploring the unique 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. She asks the question; can how we identify vocally define people's perception as much as how we identify visually?
WARNING - MAY CONTAIN STOCKINGED LEGS AND TROCHAIC FEET.

Spoken Word Artist and "Part Time Girl", Alice d’Lumiere joins a host of other exciting artists testing out short new ideas for shows. This 10 minute scratch piece fuses recent ideas with brand new material to explore two complimentary issues: the need for the gender-fluid performer to find their own voice and the decision to also fit in through non-verbal forms of self expression.
Premiering the verse piece; “Lip Sync”.
Thursday 14th June. 7.30-9.30pm
Admission Free. Age Range 14+
