Sixty-four-year-old Belgium theatre artist Vanessa Van Durme tells her extraordinary true story in Look Mummy, I’m Dancing—a candid and honest account of her life that started as a little boy, and the journey she underwent as one of the pioneering transsexuals of her time. Equal parts hilarious and touching, Vanessa’s story speaks to acceptance, humility, and having the strength to stay true to yourself against all odds.
“There’s no resisting the mixture of sharp intelligence, raunchy humour, and inner sweetness of spirit.” The Scotsman
