Elf Lyons

Modern Couples: Art, Intimacy and the Avant-garde

Elf Lyons

Join comedian and writer Elf Lyons for a unique mix of stand-up, re-enactment and clowning in the art gallery.

Comedian and writer Elf Lyons responds to the artists who influenced her own development as an LGBT+ performer during her time at Philippe Gaulier’s legendary clown school in Paris including Lee Miller, Man Ray, Pablo Picasso and Claude Cahun.

Elf Lyons mixes stand-up, sass, clowning, drag and astute social commentary to create ungainly, surreal comedy spectacles on stage. In 2017 her solo show SWAN at the Edinburgh Fringe was nominated for the Best Show Award and the Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality. In 2018 it was in the final shortlist for Fringe World's Best Comedy Show and won the Adelaide Fringe ‘Pick of the Fringe’ award.
