Arts Commons Presents
The F Word
January 27, 2019
Engineered Air Theatre
Keshia Cheesman and Bianca Miranda, performers and co-creators of The F Word (the f word, in this case, being “fat”), have had the opportunity to present four 10-15 minute iterations of their show - each time, a very different form yet all confronting fatphobia, diet culture, and celebrating their personal journeys. In this short-term residency, they want to continue to play and experiment with content that will lead to the development of a one-act show. Joining them in this residency is a third artist, Kathryn Smith, who will wear many hats as director, designer, and songwriter. As part of the public showing, you can expect to see three snippets from their week-long residency - something they are proud of, something they are unsure of, and a song (if it exists). Their hearts, minds, and bodies are open to the endless possibilities that can come of this week.

Completed in 1994 the Engineered Air Theatre carries on the tradition of having a theatre located in its exact location for over 100 years, even incorporating rescued decorative elements from the old Empress Theatre into both its theatre and lobby design. In the summer of 2016, the Engineered Air had a face lift with the comfier chairs and updated décor.
