Tell us about The Most Massive Woman Wins.
In The Most Massive Woman Wins, four women of various shapes and sizes sitting in the waiting room of a liposuction clinic explore their perceptions of body image. From painful childhood memories to frustrations with the opposite sex, these experiences both haunt and empower these women.
Describe your show in three words.
Thought-provoking. Brutal. Entertaining.
Why should someone come see your show?
Our show validates those all too familiar feelings of body shame. It shows the strange discrepancy between these characters lives, the image they feel pressured to attain, and the desperate measures they’ll go to try and close that gap.
It is for anyone who has ever felt under-confident and had masochistic thoughts about their body. And it is for those who are spectators and observers of these issues and interested in seeing a bold exploration of the topic through multiple perspectives.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
Wonder Woman because she has an abundance of battle experience and a lasso of truth, a device to extract truth from people.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
How to Really…Really? Really! Love a Woman by Dance Naked Productions because it’s female driven, funny and about “learning to make the pussy purr”.
