6 female actresses invite you to their table for a very special dinner where the entrée will be playtime, the main course, storytelling, and a fine dessert of physical presence and (over)sharing.
This one-of-a-kind theatrical experience and in front of a friendly audience, they will share their relationship with the notion of “care” through asking the following questions:
What is work? What is essential? Who takes care of whom? Who is responsible for cleaning the world?
Des Roses et du Pain, Roses and Bread, is about their need to finally reveal all the things that they have been keeping quiet for so long. To tell their individual and collective stories for the purpose of transformative emancipation.
Aside from cleaning ladies, they are also nurses, mothers, daughters, dominant and dominated, cooks, sisters at war and the authors of poems about daily life.
They also reflect on power dynamics, the impact of a lack of recognition, security, pain, passion, powerlessness and the intersection between class, race, and globalisation.
