JD Broussé

A man kneels on stage, surrounded by a cloud of flour.
A man stands with his arms stretched to his side and his head drooped.
A man stands proudly on stage, he has two baguettes on his shoulders, and is surrounded by a cloud of flour.

Jean Daniel Broussé (JD), the only son of a fourth-generation French baker, will not be following in his ancestors’ footsteps. Having studied Medieval History, Modern Literature and Circus Arts, JD steps away from baking bread, patisserie and cakes.  

After four generations, the family bakery is sold. After four generations, the boulangerie story ends here. 

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