“Fuck You! You Fucking Perv!” plays at La Licorne October 10-21

Presented by The Bakery in codiffusion with Théâtre de La Manufacture

Fuck You! You Fucking Perv!


From the 10th to the 21st  of October 2016, Leslie Baker and her company, The Bakery, will be presenting in codiffusion with Théâtre de La Manufacture Fuck You! You Fucking Perv!. for the first time at Théâtre La Licorne. The performance will be presented in English, along with French surtitles integrated into the scenography.

In this solo performance, Leslie Baker proposes a schizophrenic immersion into psychological damage caused by premature sexualisation: a sensory bombardment of images, sounds, tap dancing and jokes about sexual predators and mental illness. Combining elements of performance art, physical and visual theatre, this play is one of countless nights in the life of an unnamed woman who struggles against forces real and imagined, a night in which she can’t distinguish between past and present.

Artistic director of The Bakery, Leslie Baker has worked internationally as a creator, teacher, performer and movement coach since the 1990’s. Notably, she began a ten-year collaboration with Robert Wilson in 1995. Originally presented in Studio 303’s Edgy Women Festival, and toured to Bulgaria’s Aquarius Era Festival of Physical Visual Theatre, Leslie Baker and team continued to develop Fuck You! You Fucking Perv!,  presenting it at Montreal Fringe 2013, SummerWorks 2014, NYFringe 2014, and the Wildside Festival 2015.

The Bakery is an interdisciplinary theatrical laboratory. Corporal expression, images, sounds, and text are blended to create a conceptual performance event that emphasizes the pleasure of live art. The Bakery escapes traditional theatrical structures and addresses the 21st century audience about contemporary concerns. Company members are Leslie Baker, Peter-Cerone, Joseph Shragge and Emma Tibaldo.
