Breton Follies Company Description
With a cinematic approach to movement, Breton Follies’ vernacular is rooted in classical ballet, cabaret, and latin rhythms, while honoring the style and sounds of the 1940s–1970s in musical theater. Celebrating the female form while debunking behavioral expectations based on gender, we explore humanity as expressed through time travel. Breton Follies represents a unique group of artists committed to creating gender fluid art, representing varied ages and background. Our current cast spans ages 22-60, a reoccurring theme in Breton Follies productions for stage and screen.
