Memory Tearoom - Gregory Lorenzutti and Yumi Umiumare

Melbourne based Japanese-Australian performance maker and choreographer Yumi Umiumare and Brazilian-Australian photographer and dance maker Gregory Lorenzutti had a six-month art residency at Boyd Studio-1 from January to June 2018 creating a space titled 'Memory Tearoom’. The artists explored the idea of shared memory through installation, movement research, photography and tea ceremony rituals. During the residency, Yumi and Gregory collected 41 stories from a vast range of people from different cultural backgrounds, ages and gender. The work culminated in a public showing where the results of the residency were shared with peers and guests.

Further developments for this project have been planned for Brazil and Japan with a world premiere in Melbourne in 2021.
