Magic is everywhere. Put on a dress and people treat you one way. Try a pinstripe suit and, abracadabra it’s like you are a different person. They say beauty is just skin deep but then why is appearance so important to the way we are treated?

Matt likes wearing suits and Matt likes wearing dresses. Matt likes being visible and Matt likes being invisible. Matt likes making things appear and disappear. Matt is a poet and a performer. Matt is interested in how appearances shape how we treat each other. Matt will appear onstage tonight.

Matt has brought along some frocks and some ties, some slight of hand and some party poppers, 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. Won’t you be, too? Playing out some version of you. What do other people see when they look at you and is that you, you or an illusion? After all, magic is everywhere if you look for it.

Fitting explores our universal experiences of visibility, invisibility and finding new places to fit. Fitting is a theatrical glamour fest, sprinkled with magic.
