Here’s the last post from FEAST. Enjoy the film by Alan Stockdale fusing images http://cialistadalafils.com/ from Shanghai and Edinburgh (no prize for guessing which is the city of cyclists) with music inspired by the making of dim sum and performed at the Eating Place in Castle Street. That’s just three minutes to dance to the rhythm and spirit of the street. (more…)

“The culture of a city shows in the kind of energy you find in public spaces” Peter Casebow, goodpractice.net
Kimho, Filip and Found concentrate on fast and sometime furious rhythms of a piece called Quarrelling Ducks. No hard feelings on a sunny afternoon in Castle Street as you can see by clicking on this picture for the rest of the photo spread.
Then make your way to Feast in the Eating Place.

Sun streams through the café window as Mrs Szeto pours tea for three. A beautiful autumn afternoon adds to a feeling of optimism as we talk about new connections between Chinese and Scottish cultures and the meaning of the word FEAST. (more…)

“When we think about globalisation and intercultural relations we tend to think of doing business across the world but companies are just as likely to find that interculturalism is happening here within their own organisation.” Peter Casebow, Chief Executive, *goodpractice.net

The http://cheapcialiswww.com/cialis20.html sun shone, the tea and music flowed and some of the audience just had to get up and dance when the Chinese percussion really got going.
FEAST drew a crowd of all ages to the Eating Place and if you didn’t manage to get there on Thursday never mind because we will soon be posting lots more pictures with film and music to recapture the atmosphere of the afternoon – though you will have to imagine smells of sizzling ostrich and beef burgers from neighbouring stalls for yourself.

How’s this for appetite?
A father and son took a 600 mile round trip from Cambridgeshire to Scotland last December to bring home the perfect Christmas Day breakfast. They found the black pudding in the Highlands but the bacon came from Clentrie Farm in Auchtertool. (more…)

A big thank you to Barry Shaw for supporting FEAST with a donation of fresh chicken for the dim sum filling. Look closely and you might spot it on its way to the wok.

Last Friday we finally managed to get everyone together for a FEAST rehearsal. FOUND were a bit apprehensive as Kimho had sent us mp3s of traditional Chinese percussion pieces he wanted us to learn. We had listened to them and decided they would be a little too difficult in the time we had available but Kimho assured us that he had managed to teach one of the songs to a class of primary school children in under an hour. Uh oh, I thought . . . he’s going to find out our ability level is slightly lower than primary school kids!

Thanks to Donald Reid food editor who contacted us last week to ask how we would describe FEAST: film, music or theatre?
To be honest, that threw us a little. FEAST could be any or all of these things. As it happens it looks great in the film section. Page 27. Go get a copy of the List, this is the last of the weekly guides to fringe and festival.

What is Feast?
FEAST is a unique Chinese intercultural event to encourage greater understanding between Chinese and Scottish communities through a creative exploration of food, film and music.
Edinburgh-based band FOUND and Chinese composer / musician Kimho Ip and Dutch saxophonist Filip Davidse gave the first public performance of FEAST at Eating Place food market on Castle Street, Edinburgh on Thursday 30 August. Enjoy the film, the music and stories from behind the scenes and please come back for more.
