‘If I had my life again, I would want to be a synchronised swimmer. I don’t have my life again, but I can learn to synchronised swim.’
Katie is on a voyage to prove that they can be graceful. But perhaps she already is.
She’s taken up synchronised swimming and it’s a lot harder than they thought - but she's buoyant, beautiful even. Turns out lots of the things Katie thought to be true about her body aren’t. Turns out, there’s a whole bunch of people just like them. There’s lots to unlearn.
Join Katie as she brings you what she’s learnt about her fat body, its community and its history in a journey through synchronised swimming, live music and whales.
