March 2nd: Tea Performance

The Tea Project is an ongoing dialogue that traverses a variety of landscapes, from the tea sipped on a Chicago sidewalk, to a quaint coffee shop, to a cage in Guantanamo Bay, to a motor pool in Iraq; tea is not only a favored drink but a shared moment that transcends cultural divides and systems of oppression. That is not meant as a clichéd utopian statement, but as a reminder of a shared humanity that is so often overlooked. This event featured visiting artist and veteran Aaron Hughes.
