Vanessa: Look Mummy, I'm Dancing

Vanessa: Look Mummy, I'm Dancing



A transsexual woman slowly but resolutely peels off her sixty-year-old skin until we find ourselves face to face with the reverse side of her soul. This monologue is a confrontational and moving lament on one person's struggle for simple happiness that leaves a lasting impression.

Belgian artist Vanessa Van Durme, born a boy in 1948, talks with surprising honesty about her sex change in an attempt to break down the public's prejudice, demonstrating that people who are different are also people.

Look Mummy, I'm Dancing, is the stage version of Vanessa's autobiography of the same name and has been performed in four languages all over Europe and America. It comes to Lancaster hot from London's SPILL Festival as part of only very few UK dates.

Age recommendation: 16+

Produced by Frans Brood | Directed by Frank Van Laecke
