BRED is a long term performance project and fictional company.
BRED is rethinking value and productivity. Using bread dough, powerpoint and the body, the experience of working at BRED’s offices is characterised by shifting temporalities, and blurrings of language and lingo. All audience are participants, and all participants are workers…over your time at the company, you may build your capacity to wait-with, gain insight into what really makes a great manager, and even be part of a top-secret new project.

In 2022 BRED or extracts was presented at TripSpace’s Make Movement Matter Festival, Calm Down Dear Festival @Camden People’s Theatre, Gallery Lock-in Brighton, and Open House Hackney / Intercultural Roots, as well as further developed at a residency with third-theatre collective Cross-Pollination at Stendis/Denmark. An excerpt of the full installation, called The Manager (festo) can be presented as a stand-alone performance.
BRED features Manuela Albrecht and was made with her creative input.
BRED was initially created via research for my MFA in Creative Practice: Dance Professional at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance / Independent Dance, which achieved an outstanding distinction and was supervised by Kirsty Alexander and Florence Peake. This video was created with the collaboration and creative editing of Gani Naylor.
