Poet and theatre maker Matt Miller and director Peader Kirk are set to entertain Tyne Valley audiences with their new co-created solo theatre performance.

On the back of a highly successful autumn tour, Fitting, described as a “theatrical gender-queer glamour fest, sprinkled with magic and ready to mess with your binaries”, kick starts its spring schedule here in Tynedale at the Queen’s Hall Arts Centre in Hexham, on March 25 and 26.

The performance will explore Matt’s experiences of visibility, belonging and identity.

And through autobiographical accounts and physical theatre, Matt will discuss how personal appearances shape the way we are treated and treat others.

The solo theatre show will follow Matt’s adventures in dresses and suits, from interactions with strangers at bus stops, to transgressive explorations in charity shops, as audiences navigate and explode the ground between gender binaries.

Alongside the show, two wraparound participation activities have been developed, including conversation cafe and versions of you, designed to allow the public to engage with the questions which the show asks and to open a gentle, fun and supported dialogue about where they feel they fit.

Matt, a former artist in residence at Alphabetti Theatre in Newcastle, and winner of the Nottingham heat of Slamovision – an international poetry slam between all 27 UNESCO Cities of Literature – and Peader, an international artist and director specialising in performance and sound art, began working together in 2016 debuting Sticking to sold-out audiences across the UK.
