Erika Bülle - Scars

  • Matthews Yard: Theatre 1 Matthews Yard Croydon, England, CR0 1FF United Kingdom (map)

Scars is a performance that talks about the fat body and the discrimination with which it faces.

The elements shown are related to the metaphor of the empowerment of our bodies and the constant struggle against the stereotypes of beauty to which corporal dissidents rebel. 

Scars is an encounter between the pain of the fractured body and also the joy and liberation of it, is to remove the stigma that a dissident body is an ugly, useless and disposable body.
