Anarkeyology of hand eye ear notations

http://chirotzerozine.blogspot.com
the blog is more exusively concerned than this one with presenting essays, reviews (inc. "bad reviews") , Visual Poetry, Sound Poetry, Event Scores, Manifestos, Manifotofestos, rantin' & raving, rock'roll, music all sorts--by myself and others--if you are interested in being a contributor, please feel free to contact me at david.chirot@gmail.com
as with this blog, the arts are investigated as a part of rather than apart from the historical, economic, political actualities of yesterday, today, & tomorrow
as with al my blogs--
contributions in any language are welcome

Free Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier
The government under pretext of security and progress, liberated us from our land, resources, culture, dignity and future. They violated every treaty they ever made with us. I use the word “liberated” loosely and sarcastically, in the same vein that I view the use of the words “collateral damage” when they kill innocent men, women and children. They describe people defending their homelands as terrorists, savages and hostiles . . . My words reach out to the non-Indian: Look now before it is too late—see what is being done to others in your name and see what destruction you sanction when you say nothing. --Leonard Peltier, Annual Message January 2004 (Leonard Peltier is now serving 31st year as an internationally recognized Political Prisoner of the United States Government)

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'



Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'


The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.


The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)

I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Please join Apocryphal Theatre Lab for our upcoming lab showing of our newest experiments in working with the sacred and celebrity.  It's at The People Show, which is an amazing theatre in Bethnal Green.   As it's a pay what you can event, it won't cost you more than you can afford so we'd love to have you come along, have a drink with us and get your feedback.  Please do RSVP if interested as there is limited seating and it's a one-off event...and of course please forward this invite on to those who may be interested.  
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Julia 

APOCRYPHAL THEATRE is delighted to present
It's not a cul-de-sac, it's a conduit

a lab showing w. after show discussion


10 dec 2010, 7:30 for 8:00pm start
pay what you can:  RSVP apocryphaltheatre@gmail.com / 07952219822
 
The People Show, Pollard Row,  Bethnal Green, London E2 6NB
nearest tube/train/bus stop: Bethnal Green
 
Apocryphal Theatre would like to invite you to see us play for the first time at The People Show! Please come along to see our latest experiments, following on a residency in April at Rose Bruford College, we have been working with what is sacred, what is celebrity and what part of ourselves do we find in each of these?  We are working from the twin poles of William James' Varieties of Religious Experience and the contemporary worship of the celebrity, asking ourselves were saints the celebrities of religion?  Do celebrities have a certain demi-god status?  How does this affect how we see, feel, experience, express the sacred or celebrity now and how do they coexist inside us?

Please do join us and stay around afterward to tell us what you experience during the evening and ask us any questions you may have whilst enjoying a drink with us during this festive season - to benefit the two good causes of Apocryphal Theatre and The People Show (who have generously hosted the lab this season). 

The all-singing, all-dancing crew for this event are:  Bill Aitchison, Danielle Antha, Julia Lee Barclay, Alison Blunt, Zoe Bouras, Kati Francis, Birthe Jorgensen, Maria Kapsali, Steve Potter, Karla Ptacek.
