How do you like to present yourself? How might you express yourself in words? Have you found a public voice for yourself, both literally and creatively?

In this workshop accompanying her new show Speaking Out and Fitting In!, Alice d’Lumiere invites you to try some creative writing and more importantly creative speaking.

What to expect

Alice aims to create a safe space where people can talk, write and let their voices sound out in verse, or in prose. The focus for the work is identity and self; Alice herself is male to female gender fluid and welcomes discussions and expressions of both cisgender and transgender identity alike.

If you have written some verse that’s personal to you, or you have a short piece of prose in progress, please bring it along; either on paper, or in your head should you be able. If you’re not working on anything, but want to play with words and voice just bring yourself, your imagination and a willingness to express yourself aloud; as Alice would love to hear from you too.


Ticket offer!
