TEA CEREMONY

    Tea Ceremony

    FRIDAYS
    $20 

    Immerse yourself in chado ('the way of tea') and take part in an ongoing performance artwork made by Rirkrit Tiravanija especially for The Red Queen exhibition at Mona. The work revolves around the centuries-old Japanese chado, a precisely disciplined tradition informed by Zen Buddhism for preparing and serving matcha (powdered green tea). As a participant, you will be guided by tea master Allan Halyk to the heart of chado: rigorous simplicity, and awareness of the moment. 

    Each Friday
    30 minute sessions at 11am, 11.30am, 12 noon, 12.30pm, 1pm and 1.30pm
    Book at Museum Reception or call
    03 6277 9971
    We prefer to book only two people for each session.
