Live Big Girl April 2024 The Live Big Girl crew is back at it again to perform their latest production, Live Big Girl: A Chair That Fits, in a two-night engagement, April 20-21, 2024, at the Lehman College in the Bronx. With direction by award-winning author and performance poet Peggy Robles-Alvarado, the play, starring Rebeca Lois Lucret and Vanessa Chica Ferreira, advocates for body positivity through poetry.

Live_Big_Girl_Testimonial_1_(facebook)Why are body positives supporting Live Big Girl: A Chair That Fits? This poetic play expresses how important it is to accept our bodies and fall in love with them, starting with loving ourselves and what we have to offer—inside and out.

Get out and Live Big, Girl! It’s not just a statement; it’s a movement!


A spoken word, poetry, and performance art troupe that addresses fatphobia by promoting the act of living big. Members Rebeca Lois Lucret, Vanessa Chica Ferreira, and Karina G-Lopez have created plays and workshops that empower people to stand against fatphobia and embrace life in their bodies.


Anyone! Especially if you have had to explain why you look as you do and have had to stand up for yourself and others against body shaming and ridicule. Is anyone tired of the constraints placed on people with larger bodies? Is anyone ready to see a change in society and how it (mainly our doctors) views bodies above a size 10? That’s ridiculous! If a ‘size 10 is average for Women,’ most of us are being judged. Let’s leave words like “average” out of our vocabulary. Instead of setting size limits, let’s see people being comfortable in their bodies. Comfort is what matters.

It’s time we changed the narrative!


“Live Big Girl: A Chair That Fits is a poetic play that pushes boundaries when addressing fatphobia simply by living big. This play speaks on the personal and vulnerable experiences of living in larger bodies, demanding space while educating and muting the mouths of critics. Fat bodies continue to be a topic that plagues beauty norms, social media, healthcare, and the day-to-day lives of many people. The more places this conversation is held, the more seeds are planted, making for a more informed and compassionate society that respects differences. This body of work was created to shift those narratives. Join us in elevating this work!” – Live Big GirlLive Big Girl Vanessa Chica Ferreira

Live Big Girl Rebeca LoisWe cannot allow societal standards to minimize us as human beings. It’s time for natural bodies of SIZE and Matter to overcome a distorted (negative) body image! We should spend less time worrying about things we don’t like and focusing on what we like about our bodies.
