Tea Ceremony

Theater Collective SRSLYyours,
On Stage,

The Performance Collective SRSLYyours returns to Rialto’s Stage after its European Tour of “Egoland” (2017) and “Fear Industry” (“Best Theatre Performances on Berlin Stages”, 2016). In this captivating devised-theatre performance, the Tea host (Marios Ioannou) takes the audience on a journey of human pleasures and earthly delights. The international production (Germany/Japan/Cyprus) questions our motivations and choices within a consumerist system – deeply rooted in historic colonial infrastructures and thinking patterns – in which advanced societies increasingly fulfill their needs at the expense of a growing exploitation of the world’s resources and suffering of others.
