Edalia Day

I'm an animator, illustrator, poet and theatre maker based in Norwich. Trained at Lecoq and Alra, my theatre is visually stunning, with physical comedy, interactive video projection and a child like sense of play at the heart of everything I make.

 

I'm transgender and until relatively recently it was something I struggled with a lot. In late 2014 having crossed paths with genderqueer theatrical troupe Milk Presents (Joan, Bullish) I began exploring my gender identity through writing and performing comedy songs at cabaret events such as at Bar Wotever in Vauxhall and the Ukulele Cabaret in King's Cross. Since then I've come a long way towards accepting myself and I care passionately about supporting other marginalised voices and celebrating the wonderful art being created by trans artists worldwide. 

I've been an actor for over 14 years, performing a wealth of Television, Shakespeare, physical theatre and children's Theatre, and in 2014 I began writing and producing my own shows, starting with In The Surface Of A Bubble, a four hander, mixing masks, martial arts, puppetry and live music to tell the story of a girl struggling to come to terms with a transgender parent, set in a fantasy world where anything you imagine comes true.

My current shows include Super Hamlet 64, about videogames and Shakespeare, Too Pretty To Punch, about transphobia in the media, and Spectacular Spacebots, a new family show I'm developing about an autistic robot who goes on space adventures.

Since lockdown my focus moved to animation and I'm now working on more motion design and projection mapping projects for a variety of brilliant companies.
