Sydney dance theatre company Force Majeure plans to investigate the personal stories and experiences of individuals who live in bigger bodies. Artistic Director Kate Champion will work in collaboration with Artistic Associate Kelli Jean Drinkwater (artist, filmmaker, fat activist) to create an intriguing, powerful and at times beautiful dance theatre work for the fat body.
Force Majeure is inviting self-identified people of size (bigger bodied/large/fat) to participate in the audition process for a groundbreaking dance theatre exploration of what it means to be fat.
This project provides a unique opportunity for larger bodied people to engage with their self-expression through tailor made workshops and movement labs with the aim to produce a high-end, innovative dance theatre piece that will premiere in 2015.
This work is a rare opportunity for people of size to showcase their skills and innate ability to be great movers and dancers (trained or untrained). Performers will work within a supportive environment where they will be encouraged to take risks exploring their physicality.
Please check out the websitefor more information, including on how to apply. The closing date for applications 5pm Friday 14 June.
OOTD: Screw you Monday Now, all I’ve ever wanted is a pair of Docs to go with my punk lyfestyle, but since I’m a sad poor fatty I will have to make do with these boots that I got in the H&M sale for 15 euros (last pair, my size!)
Jacket & tunic: H&M+ (EU50, XL) Boots: H&M Oxblood jeggings: Asos Curve (UK20 and strangely enough true to UK size unlike anything else I’ve gotten from them ever)
