Tea Break

One to one performance, variable duration

Developed and premiered during DRIFT residency with ZU-UK, London

Working with the performative potential of tea blending and voice, I craft an intimate sensory experience, a shared gift.
In this piece there are no words. Once you enter the room, the only seat available is one across a small table from me. On it flowers, herbs and hot water. We look, we touch, we smell. I sound with my voice, amplifying the elements. We make a blend speficic to us, we brew the tea, we slow down, watching and listening. We share a cup and then you leave, taking your time to be with whatever this pause opened. What you don’t know is that you’ve also helped me heal – you witnessed me, you listened, you allowed me to open just like the infused tea leaves. Thanks for the dance.
