KOELTZSCH, Grit Kirstin. Between Food and Dancing. The Corporal Pleasure at the Bean Festival in Santa Rosa de Tastil (Salta, Argentina). RIVAR (Santiago) [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.24, pp.145-164. ISSN 0719-4994.

This paper examines the relationship between food and body in the context of a popular festival in Santa Rosa de Tastil, province of Salta, Argentina. The intention is to relate bodily expressions and emotions with playful dynamics, between the consumption of regional products and a festival with diverse activities, where dance and body articulations stand out. The researcher approaches these connections from two perspectives: the relationship between food and culture where the body plays a key role, considering the phenomenological approach and the anthropology of emotions, as well as the concept of the play, considering that coexistence and human actions are penetrated by the play element. Methodologically, the work includes an autoethnographic approach due to the researcher participation herself, recognizing my own perceptions and experiences in this context. The article concludes that the enjoyment of food does not depend on the degree of its elaboration, but on the act and circumstances of its consumption in a social-playful context, that allows bodily contact and pleasure.

Palabras clave : food; dance; festival; body; emotions.
