“A rare treat to see acrobatic prowess mixed with soulfulness” Culture Tiger
First solo show from Jean-Daniel Broussé, well known internationally as one half of the hugely successful Nikki & JD acro duo.
JD was born to inherit the French bakery run by four generations of his family. Instead, he studied history and literature, then ‘ran away to join the circus’, training at London’s National Centre for Circus Arts. He has performed with top UK contemporary circus groups including Barely Methodical Troupe and Ellie Dubois’ Superfan, and with Nikki Rummer in the multi award-winning Knot.
In his first solo show JD travels through a universe of bread-making, physical heroics and growing up queer in strait-laced provincial France. His collaborator and director is Ursula Martinez, the writer and performer of whom The Daily Telegraph predicted ‘in a few years’ time will be formally adopted as a national treasure’.
