►Durée : 1h20 /

 

Seeking to understand the decline in family farming, two actors, one the son of a farmer, have undertaken a vital project in documentary theatre. They have harvested testimonies from a peasant reality which have their effect. Nourrir l'Humanité c'est un métier [Feeding humanity is a professional job] reminds us that behind this apparently commonplace action – eating – are hidden poignant stories of men and women who have an infinite love of life and living.  

An overwhelming spectacle of humanity, combining reality with humour and poetry…On the stage, with a great deal of respect Charles and Valérie bring to life farmers whom they have met to construct their show.” Le Soir
 

“A cry of love and distress… The urgent story of the catastrophic state of farming.”
La Libre Belgique
A meeting is planned for after the show, attended by farmers and experts in agricultural issues.
