This  would be a brave performance anywhere in the world. But here in China, it's an invitation to ridicule. In a country where most people are naturally slim, being overweight, especially if you are a woman, is frown upon. But these dancers, who call themselves fatastic troop, are trying to change people's mind.
"I used to think that life is very unfair. I even attemped suicide. But since I've started dancing, I feel that society can finally accept me."
And in fact it's China itself is changing shape. Once upon a time, it was a country of equally thin communists. Now socialist fragality has given way to capitalist access, weighing China down with the fruit of consumerism.
" in the last 30 years has been a process of ^ and feast of the two generations. Availibilty, accessibility of food is just widespread now. People have more money, and they are just eating more, more, more everything."
There are already 100 million obese Chinese, and that number is predicted to double in just 5 years. This country's obesity epidemic has caused a spike in health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
So now China is on a diet. Working off the telltale science of economic success. In a country that used to worry about malnutrition, these are very strange things.
At  Love the People Diet Hospital, the doctors had turned two traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture, they say, can supress appetite, and speed their patients' metabolisms.  Xiaoyang weighs in at 23 stone,  and wants to end the discrimination she suffered her whole life.
"If two people go for the same job with exactly the same skills, they'll always pick the beautiful one. And don't even get the stuff about finding a man.
They may be new to the diet game, but the Chinese have learned the old lesson very quickly, "no pain, no gain."
