Fatty Fat Fat Presented by Katie Greenall
What is it?
A one-woman show that claims back the word fat, it's meaning, and the body that has been suffering at the hands of it's many definitions for too long.
What's it all about?
Greenall talks to us frankly about experiences she had growing up as 'the fat kid'. She speaks with no malice or anger, and even makes jokes at her own expense. She invites members of the audience up to play games with her that, again, make fun of her body and as she moves seamlessly into spoken word that openly confesses her raw, and devastating truths the audience are given a very real insight into what the experience of being 'fat' is like.
How did it make me feel?
This show gets under your skin and stays with you long after you have walked out of the theatre. Greenall's lyrical poetry is emotive and brimming with gorgeous metaphors that shine a light on the difficulties and the beauties that come with living inside a body that you are fighting to call your own. Through her delicate and often hilarious examination of her life thus far, Greenall has no problem holding a room and keeping them engaged throughout.
Fatty Fat Fat is brilliant. It's honesty knows no bounds and will have you reflecting on, and understanding more about those of us who are often overlooked and pushed aside.
