TEA? was a series of thirteen interactive performances held at Studio Nilo, Sempacherstrasse, 17 Basel. The series was the beginning of the chronicle of artist Dawn Nilo`s development of a tea ceremony. Each performance was a unique and revealed new aspects of the work. Performances were open to the public and lasted aproximately two to three hours.
There were between 1 and 13 guests for each performance – intimate, personal, real.
The series continues upon request. Just email me - mail(at)dawnnilo.com
