In Rio by far the most joyful behaviour i witnessed in the street was kids, especially girls dancing to carioca funk music, the movements are sexual and exuberant. With Rio Film maker Marcia Derraik I made a 15 minute documentary about safety and joy and sexy dancing in the streets.

On November 19th 2009 Fabio Salvatti led a Street Training session in Curitiba, Brazil.
The session was part of Festival de Cultura do Paraná, a huge event that gathered music, theater, visual arts, dance, performance and eco-politics.
This was the first session that happened in Curitiba, in which were trained different street skills, such as domino supporting, tree climbing, hide and seek, etc. The trainers were very enthusiastic about it, and plan to continue with regular sessions.

Last Chance to see the exhibition City as Gymnasium at the Cube Manchester. Other artists in the show include Neville Gabie and Media Shed.
The final session for the exhibition took place on Saturday and was attended by some faithful and some new faces. The youngest participant was in and out of her pushchair like a yoyo demonstrating how to squeeze through a discarded bike lock, summersault through a swinging sign and lie down and do nothing.
