Fake Stuff – updated

The Making of ‘Pound the Alarm’ for FUDANSO

Daniel Van Note choreographed a dance for FDANSO, a student dance company that performed in late November. By coincidence, one of the dancers in the group (Li Yazhi) was also in the Visual Anthropology seminar as well, and joined Dan to perform in this dance.

There is more footage of the performance itself, but we haven’t had a chance to edit it. In the meanwhile, enjoy this “making of” video.

Chai Lu was thorough and systematic in her investigation of street food; here is the CNN International link that she refers to in the video.

Here’s another take on street food in Shanghai, albeit one not as aesthetically-pleasing as Chai Lu’s.
