Three nights of performance, improvisation, and interaction between three singular and influential artists, Simone Forti, Steve Paxton, and Yvonne Rainer. Writes Paxton, “Tea for Three is the recent interplay by Forti, Paxton, and Rainer, three veteran dancers who admired each other’s work forty-five years before performing together. They each bring their doughty selves to the stage, making dance and performance conversation. No tea is served, but food for thought.”
