When Cake Daddy Ross Anderson Doherty was touring his fat-fabulous show in Australia this year, he met Kelli Jean Drinkwater, a fat activist and film-maker.
Ross will join Kelli after this special screening of her film to talk about fat-activism, fat bodies on stage and how we can celebrate bodies of all shapes and sizes through art and performance.

Nothing to Lose follows the fierce, fat and unapologetically queer cast of Force Majeure’s award winning dance theatre production.
Kelli Jean Drinkwater’s intimate, thought-provoking performance documentary chronicles the making of the hit dance production of the same name.
Unhappy with the lack of different sized bodies on stage, acclaimed Australian choreographer Kate Champion joined forces with artist and fat activist Drinkwater to create a new language of dance. In the process, professional and non-professional dancers alike discovered the power of their own bodies.
From open auditions and workshops to a triumphant performance at the 2015 Sydney Festival, it is a triumph over body normativity and fat shaming.
