ROSAS TEA BAR
Rosas Tea Bar comes into being as part of Rosas and today is proposed as autonomous work and present itself as participatory space available to visitors who can perform and to drink a cup of tea, socialise and have fun. Rosas Tea Bar is an installation that reproduces the facet of an actual tea bar in United Kingdom. During the shooting of the video ROSAS (the second chapter of The Trilogy), owners of the tea bar offered free tea to participants as an act of social contribution and participation.
It is the first as an actual production set defined by plasterboard walls, mirrors, dance bars, cinema lighting, and a professional movie camera. Here one may make films, photographs, dance sessions, or stage other performances with the possibility of recording them. Available to visitors, who may book use of the set through the Museums and Institutions hosting it, like in the case of Rosas Tea Bar, offering people the opportunity to express their own individual creativity, socialize, and have fun.
