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.

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 KNOT with Nikki which won international acclaim and many awards.  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.
