Theatre 48: Fat Dancer

4:37
A new mini-play called “Fat Dancer” has debuted in St. Louis. Produced by St. Lou Fringe, the script is based on the recollections and experiences of the cast, not all of whom are either dancers, or overweight. Though it is short, "Fat Dancer" has three distinct acts, performed at multiple venues back to back, all in 12 minutes. View this video to meet the cast and director, learn about how the production came to life, and to think about how the power of theater, both in terms of theatrical text and in terms of performance space, can be used to affect audience perceptions and points of view.
