Green Shake Talks, 2015 / Two performative talks (45 minutes each) / video registration of the performance at Antic Teatre
“Green Shake Talks” are two performative talks; each one divided in three concepts. The first: Control, Green and Natural and the second: Health, Green and Beauty. “Green Shake Talks” is imbued with the inherent tensions of cooking and talking/doing and thinking. Starting from the preparation of a Green Shake, the narrative moves from the history of the food mixer to the first mortars and blended foods such as “gazpacho”; from the valorisation of women’s work in the kitchen to the hypes of fast health and the binomial health/beauty; from the green colour of chlorophyll to the current fiction of the natural body.
A first short version was performed at “Paratext nº4” Hangar, Barcelona. A longer one at Antic Teatre and at “Do you Belive?” Fabra i Coats, Barcelona, where bottles of Green Shake were given among the audience. “Green Shake Talks” was shortlisted for Miquel Casablancas’ prize. The video above is the full-length registration of both performances at Antic Teatre (Barcelona, 2015).
