a man and a woman sit down to breakfast
You are invited underground this Valentine’s Day for a night of physical theatre and live music that explores the complex oddities of love in a world that needs it right now.
Inspired by the poetry of Jacques Prévert, Breakfast follows the story of a man and a woman in and out of love in late-1940s Paris, scored live by folk singer Ben Murray, playing the piano and accordion (nominated for Best Original Song at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards).
Theatre, based on poetry, driven by movement and live music.
Once an underground poet of surrealist and non-conformist ideals, Prévert wrote of essential human intimacy, and is known for his arrest of love against a wider world of cynicism and corruption. We're reviving this need for human intimacy once more, underground in the subterranean vaults beneath Waterloo Station for VAULT Festival 2018.
14 - 18 February
7:30pm (3:00pm Saturday Matinee)
Running Time: One hour
