The F Word (the f word, in this case, being “fat”) is a piece that fuses song, movement, poetry, and narratives confronting fat phobia, diet culture, and celebrating Keshia’s and Bianca’s personal journeys towards body acceptance. Through this piece, they challenge audiences to re-define the type of bodies deserving to be seen or heard on stage.
“The F Word brings together a diverse treasure trove of theatrical delights through the incredible voices of Keshia and Bianca. These Calgarian artists have been willing and open to bare their souls, their lives, and their art within this unique piece.” - Stafford Arima
