Group Motion has never been afraid to take on the mythic and symbolic in its performances. With Body, the new work choreographed by artistic director Manfred Fischbeck and presented Thursday, different ways of experiencing the body are laid out in an exploratory way. At the beginning, audience members were invited to walk through a living tableau of company members, lining the stage space behind a large scrim. Several allegorical figures represented not only the different senses, but also different ways of understanding the body: A prehistoric figure offered the primary sense of touch; a monk, taste; a sort of Renaissance artist with a mirror, vision.

To understand what Michael Pollan is peddling here, you have to understand what The Index is. And to understand what The Index is, you have to understand what Harper's magazine is. And to do that, what you need is a context: A guy walks into a bar. He is looking at a Playboy. He is holding the magazine sideways and saying, "Actually, I buy it for the articles. " Give me a break. Nobody's that deep into jazz polls. This guy is in it for the fun stuff. You know it and he knows it. And, after all, a picture's worth a thousand words, right?

THEY say that a picture is worth a thousand words. But since newspapers rarely print letters of such length, I am enclosing a photo of my cell phone banner proclaiming my sentiments. Regretably, Verizon Wireless advises that they cannot program the phone to play our fight song for incoming calls. GO EAGLES! David M. Seltzer Huntingdon Valley

I bought my Valentine a digital camera last year. Ever since, I've been pondering the meaning of the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words. " "This is a nice picture of you," my Valentine said to me in the kitchen one Saturday morning, handing me a photo he had just printed. I remembered when he had taken it. We were sitting around a table at an alfresco restaurant, with children and grandchildren, enjoying bowls of ice cream on a warm, sunny day. He had carefully focused his camera on each of us to capture a fleeting, digital essence.

A PICTURE is worth a thousand words. That should make the March 29 front page ("Too Fast Eddie") worth a small fortune. Either my old eyes are deceiving me, or Fast Eddie Rendell AND his State Police driver have failed to fasten their seat belts! William Palmer Philadelphia Condi on the spot Condoleezza Rice says that only "law" and "precedent" keep her from testifying publicly to the 9/11 Commission.

A PICTURE, they say, is worth a thousand words. But there are no words to describe the photo of Allen Iverson on the cover of the August issue of Slam magazine. The Answer is sporting an old-school 'fro, a retro Sixers jersey, a large diamond stud and a long, thick necklace that adds 10 pounds to his nimble frame. The headline of the special edition commemorating the magazine's 150th issue states: "Allen Iverson, Respect Due. " In an exclusive interview, the 36-year-old Iverson candidly discussed his past, and gave insight into how he would like his future to play out. "A lot of people think I'm the biggest ass- in the world," Iverson said.

What's in a photograph? I don't mean that one, the one showing the man with the submachine gun and crying Elian. I mean the one with smiling Elian reunited with his dad. That's the photo that counts because of the way Elian Gonzalez's Miami relatives have interpreted it. Their response clearly shows that Elian has spent weeks in the hands of lunatics. There was a hysterical Marisleysis Gonzalez comparing Elian's haircuts in two pictures, arguing that the picture of Elian with his dad was somehow fake.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a Delaware County Court judge must now decide whose thousand words apply to five minutes of grainy, black-and-white video that shows six Upper Darby police officers arresting Wayne Ingram after a late-night run-in last year. In the incident, shortly after midnight on Sept. 11, 1996, prosecutors allege that Ingram became combative and resisted arrest as they tried to issue him a routine traffic citation for going through two red lights.

A lissome 15-year-old boy with wild hair stood on the edge - I mean the sliver-of-a-spit-of-the-edge - on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, the March wind billowing his shirt. His back was to the glorious striations of the canyon walls, the heels of his Keds precariously trim with that edge. He seemed more bird than human, with his arms spread as though ready for takeoff. His grin was as big as the firmament above him. Awesome and amazing. Two words so overused we hardly react to them.

Biographical drama is a tricky enterprise. When a biography centers on a pivotal moment in a life, ( End of the Rainbow , The Mountaintop , Amadeus ) it's perhaps most effective. But when the approach to that life is a chapter-by-chapter memory play, as with Carson Kreitzer's frustratingly didactic Behind the Eye , receiving an equally frustrating production by Gas & Electric Arts, the result - despite nudity and R-rated language - can feel an awful lot like a lecture.

SPIKE LEE'S "Red Hook Summer" is an erratic mix of one-crazy-summer high jinks and gathering unease that explodes, finally, in jarring conclusion. It has echoes, in that structure, of Lee's "Do the Right Thing" - Lee appears as the same character he played 23 years ago - though "Red Hook" lacks the sustained energy and poise of that landmark movie. "Red Hook" is the story of Flick, a suburban Atlanta teen dumped for a summer into the big-city tumult of a Red Hook housing development in New York.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Cliff Curtis always thought of himself as a funny guy. He did comedies in his native New Zealand. But once Hollywood saw this Maori actor in the breakout drama Once Were Warriors, it was hard to find the man funny. "I did a couple of movies, straight off, where I had to learn to be a tough guy," he says. "And that stuck. " He played shady Arabs ( Three Kings, The Insider, The Majestic ) and cops ( Fracture, Live Free or Die Hard. ). His ethnicity got him plenty of offers in movies set around the drug trade ( Blow, Colombiana )

'Premiere Week" comes to a close Friday night with the best new broadcast series of the fall. And, just to prove this TV thing is still a mystery to everybody, the worst one debuts the night before, on the very same network. A few more new shows pop up in the next few weeks to augment the 16 the networks will have left on our doorsteps since Monday, but none will match the solid cast and intriguing writing of Blue Bloods, which stars Tom Selleck as New York City's police commissioner.

New day Anyone watching the Democratic National Convention this week could not help but be impressed by its enthusiasm and meaning. Personalities gave way to unity, debate to vision, and discouragement to hope. The convention has restored confidence and faith not simply in that party, but also in the basic principles and ideals of our country and democracy. For those who were there, and for us at home, there were advances and high points it may have been difficult to previously envision or imagine.
