Theatre Performance

By Jean Daniel Broussé

Thursday 19 May 7:30pm

Standard Ticket: £12 / Concessions: £10

Jean Daniel Broussé will not follow his father, or his father’s father or his father’s grandfather into the family bakery. The boulangerie story has ended.

JD is not going to bake cakes. Or Bread. The family bakery has been sold.

(le) Pain is about breadmaking, physical heroics, growing up queer in a boulangerie in the south of France, endings and new beginnings. It involves circus, dance, storytelling, Béarnaise folklore video, karaoke and laughter.

Jean Daniel Broussé (JD) studied Medieval History and Modern Literature in France and then Circus Arts in London. He worked with Square Peg, Barely Methodical Troupe and Ellie Dubois and he co-created the highly acclaimed award winning KNOT.

Conceived and Performed by JD. Directed by Ursula Martinez.
