Feasting on Famine looks to explore themes on obsession, addiction, commodification and corporatization. Using health-fitness and bodybuilding culture as a lens, Feasting on Famine explores how corporations have altered, created and monetized the industries of “success” and “health”. The human being becomes both the proponent and the dependent of big business. The body becomes a corporation where body-fat, water, calories and muscle mass are the measures for profit and loss margins. Where gains and profits are paramount, success is attained at any and all costs.
#DANCEFORTH is a new National Arts Centre (NAC) Dance livestream series designed to support Canadian dance artists both locally and nationally. Feasting on Famine is presented in partnership with The Dance Centre.
Watch on Facebook until 7pm PST October 9.
