Green Tea and Zen Baka
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A mindfulness start to your day. A refreshing cup of green tea in the garden and a mesmerising Zen-inspired performance by minimal artist David Johnstone. Back by popular demand, this visual haiku draws on ideas from Japanese butoh, Zen sages, and John Cage, with a gentle hint of mime and humour. A quietly understated insight into the daydreaming mind of a Zen fool (baka). surprisingly touching blissfully calm (Scotsman). movement beautifully blends with meditation in this memorably tranquil work quietly satisfying (Stage). A delightful, pleasing contrast to the frenzy of the Fringe (Skinny).
