Nothing to Lose

Nothing to Lose
Nothing to Lose

When you have a larger body, everyone seems to have an opinion about what you can do and where you should be seen. Dancing on the main stage at a major arts festival? Forget about it.


Acclaimed choreographer Kate Champion decided to change that situation, joining forces with queer fat activist and artist Kelli Jean Drinkwater to challenge the status quo and bring larger bodies to the stage. In the process they created a powerful new language of dance and shattered preconceptions about femininity and masculinity, beauty, and desirability.


Drinkwater's intimate, behind the scenes documentary Nothing To Lose chronicles the creation of Force Majeure's hit production of the same name. From open auditions and workshops to a triumphant performance at the 2015 Sydney Festival, it is an inspiration.
