Chris MacLeod
The Bread Man & Minister of Greets
Chris uses baking as a form of expression to create community, art, love, and connection. Co-owner of Laune Bread in south Minneapolis, his work expands on creating a sustainable business through the idea that local supports local – local food, local people, local knowledge. Chris has been baking since 2011, in Portland OR, Pt. Reyes CA, Basel + Bern Switzerland, rural Germany and Utrecht. After standing on his feet all day, Chris likes to clock out and clock into running through the woods and along our rivers.
Etty Hathaway
(Re)search Enthusiast
Etty is a PhD candidate in political science. Her research explores themes related to gender, governance and political ecology. She is particularly interested in how interactions between people, places, and political institutions shape environmental policy and its impacts on climate change. (In other words, what conditions and ingredients contribute to the final loaf of bread?) Originally from Minnesota, she is currently based in southeastern France. When she's not reading, writing, or researching, there is a good chance that she is climbing up a cliff, skiing down a mountain, or simply marveling at the microcosm that exists within her humble vegetable garden.

More Information




“Well-Made” Bread is a site-specific performance at Maison Bodega, the home of multi-disciplinary creative studio Bodega Ltd., and the trend and culture experience Salonnière Paper. Maison Bodega partners with MadRosa to graciously invite you to a pre-show welcome hour. Please arrive within an hour before the showtime to sip and mingle. To avoid burning bread (seriously, please note there will be gluten onsite), the show will begin promptly and late seating is not permitted. The show's runtime is 55 minutes. 


Doors open one hour before the show. Please find free street parking along Pleasant Avenue and Ridgewood Avenue, as well as in the Whittier neighborhood south of Franklin Avenue. Enter Maison Bodega via the pink door located on Pleasant Avenue.


Accessibility notes: Seating will be simple chairs with a back, no armrests. While there is not an ADA entrance available, there is a back entrance with a half flight of stairs that offers more accessibility for someone who would have trouble with the full flight from the main entrance to the performance room. The back entrance is accessible via a driveway from Pleasant Avenue located on the north side of the building. Please email at least 24 hours prior to the show if the back entrance accommodation is needed.
