The Other Side of Light : Tea and Butoh in Brisbane

LKG_JapaneseArt_TAASA_Brisbane_Adam_Wojcinski_Tea_650pxHosted by TAASA Brisbane founder member Dr James MacKean, gallery manager and sake professional Byron Kehoe and Ueda Soko tea master Adam Wojczinski introduced the culture of Japanese sake, tea and Butoh to a group of some 30 Asian art enthusiasts, including several personnel from QAG, in Brisbane in November. In a tatami room along with a Maio Motoko furosaki screen, Adam demonstrated the art and philosophy of tea. Lunch was the setting for sake tasting and an exploratory appreciation of unique vessels from LKG’s collection, and as the evening settled, Adam performed Butoh to candlelight.
