    Forbidden Kyoto: An Encounter with Green Tea

    On September 2, 2011, at 8:00 p.m., Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts is pleased present an exclusive showing of a 45-minute documentary, Forbidden Kyoto: An Encounter with Green Tea, filmed in Kyoto, Japan for the Japanese National Broadcasting Corporation. It features Emerson Umbrella artist Richard Milgrim, who for the last 30 years has split his time between the U.S. and Japan.

    The program explores many of the innermost aspects of the “Way of Tea,” and gives us an up-close look at an 800-year old ritual tea offering as performed by Dr. Genshitsu Sen, the 15th generation Grand Master of the Urasenke Tea Tradition. We are also given the rare privilege of a visit to Dr. Sen’s personal home, a 400-year-old tea complex registered as an Important Cultural Property and one of the most sacred inner sanctums of the tea world that is closed to the general public.
