Have a well-deserved TEABREAK in this heart-warming new show from Trigger. As you stir your cup, gently glide through the history and ritual of tea with a transportive audio piece and live dance performance. Follow the journey of tea across continents and centuries, onto our shores and into our teapots as the great comforter of our time.
With freshly brewed chai and peppermint tea served from Trigger’s beautifully hand painted Tuk Tuk, this gentle performance brings an uplifting moment of pause. A rich tapestry of voices reflect on tea, from personal stories of love, loss and ritual come something universal: an invitation to rest awhile, appreciate all that we have, honour moments that have passed and ready ourselves for what is to come.
