British Library Sound Archive recording and documentation of Potentials of Performance events (26-27 October 2012). This third themed year of the Performance Matters project features a vibrant series of commissions exploring and exploding the dialogue as a potential format for thinking through and testing possible futures. This project examines the ‘potentials’ of fat bodies in terms of the cultural and medical discourses that surround and speak of, for, and over them. The audience is invited to take a journey with three fat activists through a number of imagined ‘fat futures’ – both dystopian and utopian, that take the current Obesity Epidemic to its extremes.
