Isabelle Greiner, Fasciatherapist
Our festival team were the happy beneficiaries of fasciatherapy, a relaxing manual therapy that works deep down on the fasciae, a network of fibers that divide, link and wrap around all parts of the body. They can be affected by physical problems, mental activity and our emotions. So, taking care of the fasciae has positive effects on these three levels. This non-manipulative approach stimulates the body's auto-regulation capacities, takes the body/mind unity into account and develops our body's powers of perception.

In the heart of Geneva's vineyards, the Devinière domain occupies 33 acres on the AOC (certified wines) zone of Satigny/Geneva. All their wines have been cultivated by bio methods since 1995. The Devinière's team recycles rainwater run-off from the domain's largest roof to provide water in their temporary workers' quarters, the reception room and to wash machines. The Devinière's director Willy Cretegny founded the La Vrille movement, which advocates for sustainable development.

Livremoi.ch is the pet project of a trio of literature devotees with a decided penchant for action and culture. It's a multiproject designed to support independent bookshops as well as to provide an extra, alternative, showcase for Geneva's cultural scene.
As of January 2021 and based on interviews, we'll be delivering exclusive texts, selected by artists and activists active in your city's voluntary associations.
We'll be responsible for ordering the books directly from Geneva's independent bookshops.
This project, we're convinced, is a great way to (re)discover literature as well as to find out what the people who make your canton's cultural news are reading.

Les Bières des Franches-Montagnes
The Jura-based brewer Jérôme Rebetez creates original house beers in limited quantity – “hand-sewn”, as he puts it. L'Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien, a BFM beer aged in oak barrels, has just been recognized by the prestigious New York Times as “one of the best beers in the world”. Over the years, the world of gastronomy has enriched itself with BFM products and many restaurants include BFM beer as a basic ingredient in the preparation of their meat, pâté or dessert dishes. Undoubtedly, beer tasters will reserve their highest praise in the future for Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes products.
