A collaboration between Yumi Umiumare’s PopUp tearoom series and S-Jon’s Tumbleweed project, this performance will explore freedom and spontaneity. This contemporary ritual will be set up through tea ceremony, food, storytelling, art making and performance. When the wind blows, the things collected transform the landscape with new shapes and forms emerging organically like tumbleweed.
Con-TemporariTEA will be a collective interpretation of movement via the wind, where people from many diverse countries have settled into the one city, creating a unique and beautiful contemporary Asian influence.
The performance will conclude with a symbolic setting- free of an inspirational connected energy of beauty, love and colour to the wind sharing the Asian influence within our vibrant modern 21st Century city, Melbourne.
