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 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 and aerial burlesque.
Alice explores the wonderful and occasionally counter-intuitive, position of the gender-fluid individual striving to fit into another gender, whilst needing to establish a unique, personal voice.
WARNING - MAY CONTAIN STOCKINGED LEGS AND TROCHAIC FEET!
“Speaking Out…” and its associated series of workshops are available for booking for Theatres and Arts Centres.
“One of the best evenings we’ve had at Colchester Arts Centre”
“Thank you for a funny, aerial, beautifully dressed… wonderful evening”
“Absolutely wonderful! I loved every minute!"
“"Had a great night seeing Alice d’Lumiere perform at the Colchester Arts Centre. Some very powerful pieces about standing out, whilst fitting in. Breaking down the barriers of gender, age and social class. Wonderful stuff!"
“I really did love it, and I feel it needs to be seen by as many people as possible, so I do hope it will tour! Whilst the show was of course wildly entertaining, I think there is a very important discussion throughout that many will benefit from. I am grateful that you shared your experiences and made me think. I found the whole evening had incredible charm and was very captivated by your storytelling so here's to its continued success!”
“Pure entertainment and inspiring on many levels:"
“Surprises abound and she entertains with her wry humour; showing us all what it is to be a woman. Burlesque, cabaret, beautiful poetry, and childhood dreams coming true is what you can expect.”
