Manchán Magan

The best thing since sliced bread

Cavan Arts Festival Highlight #8

You may know him for his wonderful books, his excellent columns, TV documentaries and podcasts, now get to know Manchán Mangan for his bread.

Arán & Im celebrates the Irish language in an engaging, accessible bilingual way, through sourdough bread and home-churned butter.

Arán & Im is a theatrical performance/installation in which Manchán bakes sourdough bread for 70 minutes while offering insights into the wonders of the Irish language – exploring potent words of landscape, terms of intuition and insight, and the many phrases that bring to life the mysterious glory of our natural world.

Anyone who has read his books 'Thirty Two Words for Field' and 'Treedogs' will already have bought tickets for the show; are there any left? That information is revealed on a knead to know basis. Check out the festival website.
