Korean connections! NASA UK was contacted recently via FB message by Seoyeon Han, a student based in Seoul. She was looking for information on busking, street theatre and especially about codes of conduct relating to busking, as part of an application for research funding. Sadly her team were not chosen by the sponsors but in the meantime Whalley Range All Stars were visiting Korea and managed to meet up with her and her fellow student (who is a magician). We all went for lunch and the students were kind enough to order our meal and introduce us to Makoli a Korean rice wine, the perfect accompaniment to the food - we can testify to that! There was an elaborate swilling and bottle massaging ritual which we watched fascinated - without this we would have missed the sediment and the fizz would have sent Makoli all over us!
We hope that they can keep contact with us and maybe one day pick up their research.

Some of you might have already heard this sad news. Bernie Bennet, NASA member and friend to many suddenly passed away last week. He will be missed and our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends.
Here's what has been announced so far.
(Due to the way that Fb works this group page doesn't let me link to people, so you need to search Fb to connect to people and posts directly)
David Danzig has posted and also Mark Morreau. I'm posting the shares above this post.

Bernie Bennett...farewell. Thanks for your great shows and inspiration. You will be missed and remembered in our hearts.

From David Danzig https://www.facebook.com/david.danzig

Sadly, this post is about the death of a dear friend Bernie Bennet who had been working outdoors as a tight-rope walker since at least 1984, when I first met him. Yesterday he opened his new show in Ireland and was thrilled that it had gone brilliantly. On the way back he had a nap whilst waiting for the ferry and died before waking up, most probably from a heart attack. He was working with a young performer called Ayrton who raised the alarm, got help and then had to drive Bernie’s rig back on his own. I'm more than happy to pass on any messages of condolence to his wife Rosa and his son and daughter.

To everyone who posted about Bernie Bennet this is from his wife Rosa:
Thank you all so much for your kind words and wonderful reminiscences of times with Bernie. Myself, Aimee and Alex have loved reading them. We will be holding a big celebration of his life here in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire soon. You are all invited and I will let you know through Dave and Mandy. Bernie always said he wanted a viking funeral - in a flaming boat set out to sea. So that is what we are giving him! Our son Alex is going to make a small boat and we will put his ashes in it and set him off from a beach we love, at midnight. Love to you all, Rosa. xx
