A note from the producers
Abby and Lillian are thrilled to have you here tonight. We're definitely not the first people to put together a show exclusively featuring bigger-bodied performers, but it's significant nonetheless. Tokenization and anti-fat bias makes the world of performance more difficult for the body wealthy. Performers who don't fit the thin (and let's face it, white, femme, hourglass) ideal simply don't get as many opportunities on stages as thin folks. On ANY stages. And many producers will only hire one fat performer at a time, so we don't often get to work together. Being on a stage with other performers of size is a rarity, and it doesn't need to be.
We intend to make this a quarterly show, and bring in performers from other states and countries, because we want New York to have regular opportunities to see hot body-wealthy dancers, and revel in the joy that we bring! If you know any corporate sponsors who would like to help fund future productions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. And thank you so much for coming out tonight. We hope you have a big fat fabulous time :)
