About

Hi. I’m Katie Greenall, the writer and performer of brand new show - FATTY FAT FAT.

This show is for anyone who has ever felt like their body takes up too much space in a world that doesn’t want to make any room. It is so rare to see bodies like mine on stage, claiming their space and their right to be treated with humanity. This is a show for fat people, by fat people.

BUT fat experience is SO much bigger than us and by taking up space, I’m hoping to build a community of gorgeously fat bodies (and allies). This is our rallying cry and love letter to the fat acceptance movement. 

I started the show on my own with the support of The Yard theatre in April 2018 and since then have built an incredible team around me. Following a brilliant response at VAULT festival 2019, where we won an Origins Award for Outstanding New Work, being invited to perform at Fat Pride in Brighton and smashing it at the Albany Rebels Season and Roundhouse's Last Word Festival we've been invited up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019!

Now… putting on a show is expensive. Like, really expensive. With the help of my team we've redeveloped FATTY FAT FAT into a whole new show ready to be seen by the fat community at large but we’re gonna need a lil help getting there. And that's where YOU come in.

"FATTY FAT FAT is a bold, vibrant and essential piece of work which made a profound connection to audiences at VAULT Festival 2019. Katie lays bare her experience with a frankness and joy that can set a room on fire. We were proud to have offered the show the Origins Award for outstanding debut work, as FATTY FAT FAT is vital, cathartic viewing for anyone with an interest in what fat acceptance looks like." - Gill Greer

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We need £5,000 of our final push to get FATTY FAT FAT up to Edinburgh. 

We’ve already raised £15,000 through funding from Arts Council England to make the show, performances, parties and special events (did someone say TOMBOLA?) which we are intensely proud of. 

Your money will make a real difference:

£1 - pays for a packet of free crisps in the show, we wouldn't want anyone to go without

£5 - pays for a weeks worth of skittles we need to fit in our chins. Intrigued? Come watch!

£20 - pays for our huge FAT balloons that keep us afloat everywhere we go

£50 - will get us a new pink-drenched costume so we can gloriously stay on brand

£100 - Lets us spread our Belly Creatures all across Edinburgh with our marketing

£300- Lights up our lives, Lighting Designer Lauren can have all the lighting hires we need!!

£1000 - gets us a much needed Stage Manager! 

£2000 - covers our travel and accommodation all August long! 

What our audiences have to say about FATTY FAT FAT
What our audiences have to say about FATTY FAT FAT

Our budget covers all our badass creative team fees, travel, set, design, videography, any thing you can give will make a real difference. 

Heading to Edinburgh Fringe is a potentially life-changing experience for us and this show, this platform will allow us to connect with hundreds of people, bodies and hopefully fatties! We want to ensure the fat acceptance movement is represented on this international platform.

We've got some incredible rewards available for your donations, workshops, tasty badges and some sublime artwork from our continuing collaboration with fat artist Liberty Antonia Sadler. 

Anything you can give will really help and we promise to keep you updated with all we do! 

Love,

Katie and The FATTY FAT FAT Team

Risks and challenges

There is SO much stigma around fat bodies and fat-shaming especially in the media right now. We know we might come under severe criticism but that is why its ALL the more important that we take this show, and our movement out to the masses.

Fat bodies, fat people deserve to be treated with simple humanity, and it shouldn't be a shock to us when we are. The more we can raise from our community the more influence our community will have over the media and the more autonomy we will have over our project and be able to challenge idealised versions of who gets to do what because of their body. It also means we will have more opportunities to perform the show, and not rely on inaccessible funding pots in order to build this community across the country as we plan to tour it.

Edinburgh Festival is full of risk with so many companies fighting for ticket sales, reviews and industry approval. No show here is without risk. But with our incredible team we feel confident we can have success at the festival. Also, with this final financial push it means we do NOT have to rely on ticket sales to pay anyone involved in the show.
