Created “tailor-made” for the actress Nathalie Bogaert, this solo is the result of their meeting, a willingness to talk about the same theme, from the point of view of the one who lives it on a daily basis with all constraints, judgments, despair, and then from the point of view of this Who observes it from the outside and tries to understand how obese it becomes.
Obesity is a growing phenomenon in several countries and continents and one of the symptoms of a society every
more sedentary and over-consuming, a company that “created” “big” and then excluded them.
Taking as a starting point a sculpture by American artist Duane Hanson, “XXL” addresses not only this sociological aspect of obesity, but also its plastic aspect, the fascination that it can exert on us, the strange beauty that can be To free from the generosity of the forms but also the distortion, the comic and the grotesque.
