“His artistic skills are highly developed, his love for humanity and his respect for all of life are highly refined by his experience as an artist and his practice of the art of living. I have grown from each of my personal and professional encounters with him. He is a valuable contributor to the several communities that we share. I’m honored to to have him as a friend and colleague. The world is a much better place for his presence in it.”
John O’Neal, Founding Director, Junebug Productions
In addition to being the owner and operator of BFVP, Bruce France is the Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director of Mondo Bizarro, a performing arts company. After a great deal of continental travel throughout his youth, due to his father’s naval service, he settled down for a while in Baton Rouge, LA at Louisiana State University where he earned his B.A. and M.A. degrees in Performance Studies. Bruce has a diverse production history working in both theater and film as a performer, writer, director, producer, camera operator and editor. His work has been seen in over a dozen states and four countries, but he gains the most satisfaction from producing and creating artistic and socially conscious projects in his home city, New Orleans.
Bruce married his long time love, Maeci Wang, in November 2008 and they have one son, Rhys Zhou, and one daughter, Quinn Zhen.
