Currently in development, Sheryl Talks Obesity is a personal exploration of obesity and of being obese, in a world which frequently berates you for being ‘lazy’ and ‘greedy’. Against the backdrop of training for three enormous physical challenges, theatre-maker Sheryl Hill mixes auto-biography, verbatim and online video diaries to unpick the complexities and real life experience of one of the modern era’s most contentious issues.
Below are some videos from the Sheryl Talks Obesity Youtube channel. Take a watch and then why not check out the rest of the channel’s videos; an archive of over seventy video diaries recorded from 2017 to 2018?
Our early research and development has been supported by Arts Council England, Young Vic (Taking Part) and Nuffield Southampton Theatres.
