"Tea with Amaryllis" is a participatory art piece functioning like a cleansing ritual. It relies on the audience to give up a very personal piece of themselves. It's about trust and vulnerability, and about the age-old wisdom that formulating and expressing pain may lessen it.

In the ritual you are asked to think of a memory, feeling or thought that is painful to you. You decide how big or small. No one will see the answer.
You write it down in 1 sentence and put it into a black teapot, thereby symbolically discarding it forever.

This collection of discarded words then becomes an ingredient for a special tea, that will be fed to one of my Amaryllis flowers.
Nature is very good at converting pain to beauty.
With this little ritual, we hope to do the same.
