Being with your body…dirt and meat

March 16, 2008

I don’t have a good excuse for including here a post about organic farming and microcommunities, but there you go, it’s my damn blog and I’ll post what I want. Here’s a link: meat goes in the body, makes the body go, where’s the meat come from? And: Where do you go when you want to move in a natural environment? What’s the ethical use of public space? Food production?

NY Times article about young urban farmers.
Blog about food.

One of the ways DV8 reaches a broader audience is by using humour. In perusing a questionable but amusing humour blog I encountered a sort-of terrible comedian (because saying you like this comedian is discouraged). This comedian uses a lot of physicality, in an almost analytical way (“When she’s going to commit brain terrorism on you, she will stand like this”). It makes me wonder whether he, like Lloyd Newson (DV8 choreographer), studied psychology.
