“As fat women of colour, we are proud to have a small part in demanding a better future for fellow fat folks who deserve to feel seen and celebrated on and off stage.”
Co-creators and performers Keshia Cheesman and Bianca Miranda have spent upwards of five years developing The F Word, which is described as “an exploration of their friendship as two fat women of colour on a a journey to self-acceptance and fat liberation…
Fairytales, lectures, dance and songs are infused with wild whimsy in The F Word as Cheesman and Miranda confront fatphobia, diet culture, and the intersection of fatness with race in this powerful, playfully political pop-art piece.”
The world premiere run takes place February 9th through 19th at Alberta Theatre Projects’ Martha Coen Theatre.
