Tea & Darkness

O my friend,
there's no room for the poem on this earth.
Is there any room for this earth in the poem, after Iraq?

-Mahmoud Darwish

As part of his ongoing re-examination of the so-called Global War on Terror and its effects on citizenship, Jeremiah Day invites US artist and activist Aaron Hughes to present Tea. In Hughes words Tea is “an ongoing dialogue that traverses a variety of landscapes, from the tea sipped on a Chicago sidewalk, to a quaint coffee shop, to a cage in Guantanamo Bay, to a motor pool in Iraq; Tea is not only a favored drink but a shared moment that transcends cultural divides and systems of oppression.” Day will present “To a Person Sitting in Darkness (Bagram, Kaiserslautern, Bethesda)” accompanied by musician Bart de Kroon. The following night, December 15th there will be a second evening’s program at BAIZ, Berlin.
