Fawn is a solo dance theatre work that considers the act of pleasing as an instinctive response to fear, threat and failure – as a person, as a dancer and as a woman.
Why do we seek to please? And how?
Complimenting, flattering, being obedient, doing something really well whilst remaining humble.
Lizzie J Klotz is an independent dance theatre artist based in Newcastle, working regionally and nationally on a variety of projects as a choreographer, performer, facilitator and movement director.
‘A vaudevillian riot of meta moments and delicious visual comedy (watch closely for the Keaton-esque bit with the microphones), a sticky candy wrapper encasing a sledgehammer of a point about female social performance in the world today.'
- Leigh Venus, NARC

Lies To Be The Truth is influenced by the characters of Hamlet and Ophelia in William Shakespeare's Hamlet. The work particularly questions the themes of sanity, revenge and religion.
