Beten - food for thought

 

 

 

 

The belly or the gut is conceived by neurogastronomists as ‘the second brain’;

Embedded in the wall of the gut, the enteric nervous system (ENS) controls digestion and plays an important role in our physical and mental well-being; It helps us sense environmental threats, and then influences our response. Thus, how do we formulate a thought;  what are the dynamics engaged in A process or what is the nature of this 'digestion' ?


The performance Beten (belly in Hebrew) explores this notion through composition and auricular landscape.
