• The Beat & the Pulse
Théâtre Municipal de Fontainbleau et FONACT, France, 2022
~ An original theatre piece, conceived and directed by Jamie Bradley, created with FONACT actors
“She lived in blissful ignorance, quite unaware she was not a girl…”
A group of writers and dancers are accidentally thrown together via a 17th Century tale of transformation, love and deceit.
Combining original text, physical story-telling and vogueing dance culture, this piece is inspired by the Abbé de Choisi’s fantastical story The Counterfeit Marquise, as it rubs up against a young generation recalibrating their sense of gender and identity.
