I've done stand up comedy and performed in various things over the years and then last year I had the amazing experience of participating in Trans Acting, a course run at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama by Gendered Intelligence. This year I had my first audition and went on to be IN A PLAY and I loved it.
Silly Girl is a short film directed by Hope Dickson Leach, based on the play by Ellie Kendrick what I was in at the Royal Court. You can see it here
Look! Here I am at the Royal Court just after being in a play! It was written by an actor/writer called Ellie Kendrick. I'm really proud of it. I'd love to do more acting. It's funny though, you have to be quite brave to go on stage but you have to be REALLY brave to try and get parts in plays.
My work as a programmer at the BFI Flare LGBT Film Festival means I'm on stage doing introductions and interviews with filmmakers and has also led to me serving as a jury member on the Teddy Jury at the Berlinale and for the Copenhagen Mix Festival.
In February 2013 I was part of a collective performance called The Movers, directed by Matthias Sperling and Carlos Motta. It was part of "Charming for the Revolution: A congress for Gender Talents and Wildness" at Tate Modern. Photo by AbsolutQueer.
The Menstrual Cycle was performed initially at the Transfabulous Festival 2008 and then at Stockholm in a Wotever show as part of Europride. It's about 15 minutes long and I wear a terrific uterus costume, designed and made by Lucas McKenna.
The poster for my first solo show. I perform stand up quite sporadically. I performed in Berlin as part of the trans*_homo exhibition. I've appeared in other people's shows too, in Jet Moon's Speakeasy at the Arcola Theatre in 2010 and, in 2009 at the Soho Theatre in "There is no word for it"
