Green Tea and Zen Baka
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Ease into your festival day in the garden with a refreshing cup of green tea and a mesmerising zen-inspired performance by minimal artist David WW Johnstone. This visual haiku draws on ideas from Japanese Butoh, the Zen Buddhist sages, and John Cage, with just a gentle hint of mime and humour thrown in. A quietly understated insight into the daydreaming mind of a zen fool (baka). Johnstones previous work as artistic director of Lazzi includes Aurora Borealis (Dance Base), Oresteia (Traverse) and Witkacy Idiota, a sheer joy (Joyce McMillan, Scotsman).
