Fat Fruit is a Melbourne based Independent arts company creating queer and body positive performances. Our shows are created collaboratively with queers, feminists and culturally diverse artists from varied artforms and perspectives. We create both large scale and intimate works that cross form and style. Fat Fruit integrate relaxed performance models into all our work and focus on making our shows accessible for Deaf and Hard Of Hearing audiences.
Fat Fruit is currently touring four works. The Legend Of Queen Kong – a queer, rock show for Deaf, Hard Of Hearing and hearing audiences alike, The Rainbow Tree – musical storytelling, written in collaboration with 7 children from Rainbow Families, Fu*k Fabulous – a queer, punk variety show and Fart Fabulous – an unapologetically queer variety show for all ages.
Created by partners in art and life Sarah Ward and Bec Matthews, Fat Fruit shows celebrate gender diversity, encourage free thinking and nourish community. We aim to disrupt accepted norms and invite our audience into queer new worlds.
