The Naked Dietitian is a one-woman spoken word piece which takes you on a journey towards knowing that your dignity is innate. By unravelling the mistaken orthodoxy of over-simplified health campaigns and making links between wellbeing, trauma, equality and privilege, the show champions body respect for all and challenges listeners to revisit taken-for-granted ideas that reduce wellbeing to lifestyle and willpower.
With an astonishing lyrical vulnerability that saw her crowned “the literary lovechild of Jeanette Winterson and Allen Ginsberg” (Broadway Baby), Lucy takes her audience through a mesmerizing 45 minutes weaving abuse, fat shame, faulty nutrition practice, queer identity, Grenfell Towers and the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Once or twice in a lifetime a performance comes along that strikes a chord so pure, resonates so loudly with your own experience, that the performer seems to have seen into your soul …Lucy Aphramor’s brilliant one-woman show Raise the Roofhit that … chord. I urge you to see it”, ***** Edinburgh Reporter 2017
