“A joyful genderf*ck you to a nonsense, binary world”


Dream job, huge fanbase, in a committed relationship with a hunky dancing bear. Everything was going right for the bearded lady; until her secret came out... 'Brilliantly understated comic.’ Scotsman

Theodora van der Beek makes performances that challenge the gender binary and explore the mechanics of power & privilege.

With a background in immersive theatre and cabaret, her shows are comedic, dark, visual and inventive. Using a range of different performance styles to tell stories, she transforms herself and the stage many times in the process. She plays with sound and the different ways we consume – referencing pop culture like classic films, TV and adverts as well as art.
