1(Fri) Dec 2017, 5pm-9pm at Testing Ground as a part of Mapping Melbourne Festval

A collaboration between Yumi Umiumare's PopUp Tearoom Series and S-Jon's Tumbleweed project, Con-TemporariTEA is a durational performance ritual, exploring freedom and spontaneity. When the wind blows, the things collected transform the landscape with new shape and forms emerging organically like tumbleweed. This is a collective inspiration of movement via the wind, where people from many diverse countries have settled into the one city, bringing their culture and rituals and through interaction create unique markings that redefine a diverse landscape, community and society full of beautiful colour, shape and texture
