TEABREAK

Outdoor interactive performance with audio, dance and tea
Buttercross

Catch your breath and enjoy a free, freshly made brew in this heart-warming show all about tea

Featuring an original audio score and live dance performance, accompanied by tea served from Trigger’s beautifully hand painted tuk tuk, this gentle performance brings an uplifting moment of pause.

As you take a well-deserved TEABREAK, you’ll gently glide through an audio journey of tea and how it’s found itself into our tea pots, what it means to us and what its real cost is.

Tea leaves have journeyed across continents and centuries to take its place as the great comforter of our time. Uniting people across the world and throughout our lives, inviting us to rest awhile, appreciate all that we have, honour moments that have passed and ready ourselves for what is to come.

A moving and time stopping experience… powerfully realised”

This is an immersive show. The audience sit on chairs and around tables, and listen to the audio piece through headphones while drinking tea and watching a dance performance.
