The Book
FESTIN by Anne Brugni and McCloud Zicmuse
Following on from BONJOUR, et le cycle de la journée [HELLO, and the Cycle of the Day] and CHEMIN, récit des origines d’un caillou [ROAD, the Story of a Pebble], FESTIN completes this trilogy of mindful books devoted to nature and the elements. This final work looks within us and captures the symbiosis of humans and nature. The writing is minimal and poetic, evoking a state of mindfulness and the observation of simple, everyday activities, such as making and eating bread. The story begins in a wheatfield and ends around the table with the sharing of food. Taking this universal and intimate theme of bread, the book is able to focus on all the invisible life that surrounds us every day – life that is around us, on us and in us. Through a sequence of infinitesimal events, it shows us the interaction between matter and life, the metamorphosis of one matter into another, the action of time upon things and the action of the invisible.

FESTIN: Musical reading by McCloud Zicmuse
A poetic and informative exploration of grain as it is transformed into bread, sung in every detail, right down to the microscopic world of yeast. An operetta-style rendition by the author of the book, capturing the smells, sounds, textures and taste of freshly baked bread straight out of the oven and shared. It’s party time! Let’s celebrate!
