The artist Michele Brody has turned the simple joy of tea into interactive, performance art. Bronx-based artist Michele Brody presents CommuniTea, a performance series featuring a shared tea service during which participants share loose-leaf tea with the artist and relate their stories, memories, thoughts, poems, and reflections, to be transcribed onto repurposed tea stained paper filters.

CommuniTea is part of Brody’s ongoing, interactive, community-based Reflections in Tea art project. The filters collected during each CommuniTea will be woven into a fluttering room-sized quilt, which will be on display at The Bronx Museum of the Arts through May 29th for the duration of Brody’s exhibition Reflections in Tea. Free admission; Tea provided by SerendipiTea

Upcoming CommuniTea Time performances:
-Saturday, April 2, 3:00pm to 5:00pm
-Wednesday, April 6, 4:00pm to 7:00pm as part of The Bronx Trolley: First Wednesdays Arts & Culture Tour
-Saturday, April 9, 3:00pm to 5:00pm
