Directed by Kate Champion
Artistic Associate Kelli Jean Drinkwater
Additional Choreography by Ghenoa Gela
Set and Lighting Design by Geoff Cobham
Text Dramaturg Steve Rodgers
“Fat” is a powerful little word, full of baggage and judgement. This undaunted dance production makes use of real-life experiences and stories to challenge aesthetic norms and reclaim a performative space for people with large bodies.
In her final work as Force Majeure’s artistic director, Kate Champion collaborates with artist and fat activist Kelli Jean Drinkwater to celebrate the sculptural splendour of the fat dancing body.
Unseen, unexpected and unapologetic, this new work abandons stereotypes and reshapes expectations.
Artist Talk:The Provocative Nature of the Fat Dancing Body on 24 January at 4.30pm at Carriageworks. With Kate Champion, Kelli Jean Drinkwater and others. FREE
Artist Talk: Tackling the difficult and complex on 18 January at 4.30pm at Seymour Centre with Kelli Jean Drinkwater, Vicki Van Hout (Long Grass) and Adrienne Truscott (Asking For It) . FREE
