My piece, my first ever performance lecture, is called ‘How Do Fat People Dance?’ and will be part of a two-hander with Zinzi Minott and Zia X on Wednesday 20 April. Details and booking via The Rebel Man Standard website.
I have two new zines available, Fat Activist Vernacular and Encounters with Nature.
You can now buy my zines through my little online shop.
My book, Fat Activism: A Radical Social Movement is now out through HammerOn Press. To celebrate, we made a little video.

I have been working with Zinzi Minott of The Rebel Man Standard on a reformulation of her piece 30 Skanks (and other revolutionary dances). It’s part of an evening of dance produced by the group and supported by Arts Council England. Hana Lee Erdman and Keyon Gaskin are also performing.

The London-based photographer Katarzyna Perlak documented the SWAGGA throughout its development process. The material she shot over a period of months forms the basis of SWAGGA, the film.
The film was screened to a sell-out crowd in September, and more screenings are on the way. For now, here is the trailer:
SWAGGA fans should also check out the two tracks that Verity Susman composed for the show, now available to listen to online. It was a real privilege to dance to this composer’s scores, created just for us.
