Stage 5, MArch


MASTER BAKERS: Imagined as a linear stage set receding from Intra highstreet to the river Medway, the Bakehouse specialises in artisan sourdough and viennoiserie. A series of mechanised devices, each with their own specific characteristics, add to the theatre of production and consumption in a carefully choreographed service. Central to the scheme, the bakery and community ovens provide a new central hub. The aroma of freshly baked bread is collected in a giant canvas bag to be distilled and injected into the high street via perfume bulbs at daily intervals, enticing passers-by.
