Synopsis


1940s Paris.


A man and a woman sit down to breakfast.


Breakfast is theatre inspired by the poetry of Jacques Prévert, driven by movement and live music.


Once an underground poet of surrealist and non-conformist ideals, Prévert wrote of essential human intimacy.


He is known for his arrest of love against a wider world of cynicism and corruption.


Breakfast is based on the poems Alicante and Déjeuner du Matin, and explores their shifts from sheer happiness to heart-sinking loss through a couple in and out of love.


It has joyous moments of heart-warming comedy and gentler moments of sadness.


Devised, choreographed and performed by Marah Stafford and Nicholas Hart, with live music by accordionist and folk singer Ben Murray.
