How to Enjoy Ceylon Tea

Choreography: Canan Yücel Pekiçten

With the question How to enjoy Ceylon Tea, Canan Yücel Pekiçten reveals the colonial past of the West fuelled with the desire to teach the most efficient way of doing things, in this case to enjoy a cup of tea. She explores “other” ways to enjoy Ceylon tea e.g., dunking her white underwear into the tea to give them a darker colour, a colour that fits her skin; dunking the whiteness into the tea, so the heavy residue of history can map itself on its skin.
