Nothing to Lose
// reshapes expectations.
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.
★★★★½ A seamless production ... Finally though, it is the performers' show. They own every move they make whether voluptuous and sensual or busting out with thrilling, demanding choreography. Champion and her team have given them an opportunity to shine in this provocative, unpredictable and inspiring new work.
Kate Champion’s dance company isn’t called Force Majeure for nothing.
