Bringing Home The Bacon

A short ‘performative’ documentary film in collaboration with Femme Bizarre. Supported by the Arts Council.

The film premiered at Fastnet Film Festival in May 2022 and was released on Beyond The Short.

Bound by their joy of expression, Jade & Kate share their love/hate relationship with being performing artists.

Jade and Kate are Femme Bizarre, an Irish duo-act with buckets of attitude. They both share their personal stories, inspiration and relationship with the arts. A performative odyssey in three parts, underscored by the inspiring message, to always follow your dreams in life.
