Join multi award nominated Edalia/Edward Day in this kickass spoken word/digital comedy cabaret celebration of transgender visibility and self-acceptance. Part spoken word/part digital comedy cabaret, Too Pretty To Punch is a celebration of transgender visibility and self-acceptance. With ukulele and a mouthful of broken words, Edalia grapples with what it means to be human when you don’t fit in any of the boxes.

About Festival of Audacity

A multidisciplinary festival of activist art making Birmingham its stage. Festival of Audacity exists because if we want art to have a real impact, it needs to be bold. Festival Of Audacity features artists in non-traditional performance spaces across Birmingham, for creators to take risks and reach people beyond traditional venues.

Enjoy. Share. Most importantly, have fun exploring new spaces, discovering new art, and seeing the city differently. Don’t forget to tell us what you think using #FestivalOfAudacity and @FreeRadicalUK. To find out more www.beatfreeks.com/festival-of-audacity.
