    Producer Di Robson

    Presented as part of Circus City 2021, (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 is the only son of a third generation baker. Destined to follow in the footsteps of his father, grandfather and great grandfather and inherit the family bakery in rural France… But JD, queer, a circus artist and intolerant to patriarchy – is not a baker.

    (le) Pain is the unexpected chapter in the bakery story. A journey through bread making, acrobatics and growing up in strait-laced provincial France, that reverberates with the tragedy, comedy and joy of making a break for it.

    (le) Pain is the debut solo show from Total Theatre award-winning artist, JD Broussé. It was made in collaboration with cheeky cabaret director and future national treasure Ursula Martinez and co-commissioned by London International Mime Festival and Warwick Arts Centre.
