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. 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).
