“Green Shake Talks” are two performative talks; each one divided into three concepts. The first: Control, Green and Natural and the second: Health, Green and Beauty. For “Green Shake Talks” I presented a talk while preparing a shake, allowing the body to interfere with the discourse, and the discourse with the body. 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 current fashion for fast health and the health/beauty binary; from the green colour of chlorophyll to the fiction of the “natural” body.
