A comedy spoken word show about gender, the media and not fitting any of the boxes, full of explosive movement, original songs and kickass video projection.

Edalia Day is a banjo wielding, poetry slam winning, trans warrior, taking on the world one troll at a time.

Too Pretty To Punch is a hilarious and uplifting journey through what it means to be trans in 21st century Britain. It reminds all of us (regardless of who we are) of the power of celebrating our existence.

The target audience for this performance is 16+ but it's accessible for gender-questioning/trans children of any age.

About Edalia Day

Edalia's theatre is visually stunning, full of explosive movement and exhilarating video projection, with comedy and a child like sense of play at the heart of everything they make.

They're a transgender/non-binary spoken word artist, animator and theatre maker based in Norwich. They trained in classical acting at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London and in mime and physical theatre at the revered Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris.

Their first self produced show, In The Surface of a Bubble(2014), used martial arts and masks to tell the story of where our dreams come from and they're currently touring Super Hamlet 64, a one person show about videogames and Shakespeare and Too Pretty To Punch, about gender in the media.

They're currently developing Spectacular Spacebots, a fun filled family show about an autistic robot space adventurer who wants more than anything to be a human.

It looks at 'masking' behaviour and how far you're expected to hide who you are in order to be accepted as normal.
