Panel Discussion: Nothing to Lose
Nothing to Lose / but your assumptions as Force Majeure continues its decade-long artistic study of the modern psyche.
‘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 and choreographer Ghenoa Gela to celebrate the sculptural splendour of the fat dancing body. Unseen, unexpected and unapologetic, this new work abandons stereotypes and / reshapes expectations.
