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 & performer, Yolanda Mercy (Quarter Life Crisis) challenges what it means to be a plus sized body in the world of contemporary dance; reconnecting with her own dance roots and drawing on the challenges faced by plus sized people both in formal training and on the dance floor. 

In a joyous fusion of theatre and contemporary dance, she’s reclaiming space for plus-sized bodies in the dance world.  

Dance Body is produced by The Place. Dance Body is co-commissioned by ArtHouse Jersey, Cambridge Junction, Deda and Strike a Light.
