Pina Bausch, 1940-2009

The Guardian:
"This morning, 30 June, Pina Bausch died, aged 68 – quickly, after a cancer diagnosis five days ago. Only two Sundays ago, she appeared on stage at the Wuppertaler Opernhaus.

Theatre and opera simply wouldn't look the way they do today without her.

We have lost dance's most visionary, influential figure, who redrew the map of the theatre arts"

Are you what you eat?

Hollywood wants to question you about what will you have for dinner.
Health equated by food business and industrialized agriculture. Maybe it makes sense.
