ABOUT
We regard a man of today in the light of what he\she eats, and want to perceive what lies behind it: economy, fantasy or following a new religion. Together with bakers and marketing experts, philosophers and neurophysiologists we dive in an art project, where on a base of documentary piece a contemporary performance is being created. Bread unites. People of various professions - bakers and marketers, philosophers and neurophysiologists, and of course, people of the theatre - playwright, director, artist, actors, are involved in the creation of the Liquid Theatre play. Through a documentary research, through current and traditional forms, such as fairy tales, rap battles, dance, videos, through baking bread and breaking it together with the audience, the theatre reflects on prohibitions, speculation, and survival in the present and future. The spectator hears the sound score of the performance in the earphones, is in augmented audio reality. This is an opportunity to hear super-everyday intonations and priceless volume levels, a chance to "hear" the world of objects and reinvent its sounds. Headphones also allow you to shift the point of concentration of the spectator's attention, enriching his individual theatrical experience, but without sacrificing the collective experience.

«OK, Google.///Bread is a bright invention of the human. There are very few valuable things in the world which, like bread, could lose their significance neither for a day nor an hour…///Staff of life…/// Gluten free…///Give us day by day…///May contain cellulose up to 70%.../// 7 euro??? ...///Allergic response to sushka (cracker ring)…///In the sweat of brow… Inge threw her bread in a puddle…///
Gene of a snowdrop…»

Only one hour goes by, and you get a golden crust in your hands, which hides a spongeous body that is emitting an adour of one-of-a-kind, fresh, just–baked bread.

And there's nothing better than that.

The bread left after the performance we send to henhouse for feeding birds.
A daring research on what bread is
