Dance is meant to be about self-expression. A place to explore who you are. But what if you don't have a typical contemporary dance body? Where do you fit in? Internationally acclaimed writer and performer Yolanda Mercy (Quarter Life Crisis) challenges what being a plus-sized body means in the contemporary dance world; reconnecting with her dance roots and drawing on the challenges faced by plus sized people in formal training and on the dance floor. In a joyous fusion of theatre and contemporary dance, Dance Body is reclaiming space for plus sized bodies in dance.
