Description

Dance is meant to be about self-expression. A place to explore who you are. But what if you don't have a typical contemporary dance body? Where do you fit in? Internationally acclaimed writer and performer Yolanda Mercy (Quarter Life Crisis) challenges what being a plus-sized body means in the contemporary dance world; reconnecting with her dance roots and drawing on the challenges faced by plus sized people in formal training and on the dance floor. In a joyous fusion of theatre and contemporary dance, Dance Body is reclaiming space for plus sized bodies in dance.

This joyous, critical show will make you want to dance. While it takes an unflinching look at the fat-phobic dance world, it doesn't rest there. "Dance Body" moves to its own beat and encourages you to find yours.
