The plus-size women in Nothing to Lose can probably dance better than you.
High kicks, pirouettes and the splits. If you thought these dance moves were only physically possible for those with svelte bodies and small frames, then, boy, are you in for a wonderful surprise. Bigger bodies are capable of so much athleticism and beauty, and these women, and men, will show you how it’s done.
A stage performance called Nothing to Lose premiered during Sydney Festival earlier this year, but this week, men and women with plus-sized bodies will be flaunting their stuff and showing off the beauty and the athleticism of their bodies.
Too often, plus-size bodies are synonymous with poor health, and exposed flesh is often met with ridicule and fat-shaming. Being overweight is often linked to physical health or lack thereof; bigger bodies are something to hide, behind layers of clothing, kept away and out of public view because they are unhealthy, unappealing and unappreciated.
But thanks to director, Kate Champion, and associate director, Kelli Jean Drinkwater, plus-size bodies are in the spotlight and, damn, they look good. They look strong, powerful and beautiful.
