About the Program

High (bridi) Tea is a performative collaboration between artist Haruko Okano and writer Fred Wah that explores the visual and textual terrain of racial and cultural hybridity. The performance installation at Nice Café centres on table settings for 16 guests and, based on a material relationship on fungus and mould, plays with issues of contamination. Through a series of anecdotes and textual surprises, Okano and Wah interact with audience assumptions and expectations to create an unstable and questioning emulsion of language and memory.
