Japanese Tea and Ritual Room—卯月Uzuki (April), with sound by Tomoko HOJO (ACC 2019), is a research-based interdisciplinary work expanding perspectives on Japanese Tea Culture, seeking new meanings in ritual, and finding common ground between Japanese traditional culture and contemporary New York life.

Japanese Tea and Ritual Room consists of interactive installations inspired by personal rituals, as described by survey participants. Live performance activations of the installations realize the cultural intersections of the concept of "nothingness" that Japanese Tea Ritual invokes. During each performance activation performers will  evoke a zen garden as human statues, stretching our sense of time so that we may find presence and stillness.
