The Last Tea Party

A video by Nancy Volante

As I started thinking and envisioning The Last Tea Party, I knew that I wanted to evoke conversations that would draw from different areas of life. The Last Tea Party embraces an ancient rock formation site that history suggests was built by the Celtics, friends having tea, two yoga teachers chanting, speaking and moving in a formal spiritual practice, and a woman retelling her story of life and death.

Angels in Time

My day begins when I leave my home drive to the train station and get on the Harlem line to Grand Central. My commuting community and myself share the same morning, afternoon and evening ritual of travel through public spaces. My commuting community and I walk through Grand Central down to the subway or out into the street. We find a cab or get on a bus or simply walk to our destination. I assume that we all are making our way to work, school, play and finally home again. What do we have in common? We are all going somewhere within the many different places and spaces in the Big Apple.
