Magic is everywhere. Wear a dress and people treat you one way. Try a pinstripe suit and, abracadabra, it’s like you are a different person.

Fitting is about Matt’s adventures in dresses and suits and also has some magic tricks up its sleeves. From interactions with strangers at bus stops to transgressive explorations in charity shops, follow Matt as they navigate and explode the ground between gender binaries.

Matt is interested in how appearances shape how we treat each other. Being visible, being invisible. Making things appear and disappear.

In a show which plays with the idea of performance itself, Matt has brought along some frocks and ties, some sleight of hand, some fitting in and some standing proud. Matt is neither a boy nor a girl but has been both. Matt will do their best, for you.

Matt will be performing. Playing out a version of themselves. Like we all do. After all, magic is everywhere, if you look for it.

In turns comic and touching, Fitting explores our universal experiences of visibility, invisibility and trying to find new places to fit.

A theatrical genderqueer glamour fest, Sprinkled with magic and ready to mess with your binaries.

Organiser

Alphabetti Theatre

Alphabetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard in 2012. We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
