This event has finished

Arty, a morbidly obese 18-year-old, agrees to star in a reality TV show – Shocking Fat Stories – after the studio offers to pay for gastric band surgery. His life is about to change, but for the better? Can Arty overcome his cravings and secure the kind of ordinary life he's so often imagined for himself? Will his miracle transformation be a ticket to personal freedom?

Using multimedia and puppetry, Beached is a dark satire about reality TV, love and the person behind the freak.
