What does it mean to be fat in 2018? Why are fat men always funny, but never sexy? How does it feel to always be the ‘before’ shot and never the ‘after’ image?
These are just some of the questions tackled by Fat Blokes, a dance show about flab, double chins and getting your kit off in public, produced by performance artist Scottee, in collaboration with choreographer Lea Anderson, and performed by four self-identified 'fat blokes’ who’ve never done this kind of thing before.
As Scottee explains in this short preview video, Fat Blokes examines and delves into the confusing headspace of what it really is to be a fat person, and being made to feel twice the size you are by the way other people behave around you and your body. It is a show which challenges perceptions and prejudices, whilst also releasing pent-up aggression in a fat rebellion.
