Tea & Letters

2:30 p.m.

Mennello Museum of American Art

900 E. Princeton St.



Time to pull out your corsets and frock coats and head to the Mennello Museum of American Art for Voci Dance’s second installment of their Great Urban Spaces series: Tea & Letters. The modern dance company plans a Victorian-inspired tea party on the museum grounds and inside the galleries, complete with improvisational dance, ensemble choreography and tea cakes for $1-$3 (yum!). As is fitting during this Valentine’s month, Tea & Letters focuses on all things love and romance, from unrequited to psychotic. And like any pseudo-Victorian event, it wouldn’t be complete without a puppet show. Just don’t be distracted by anachronistic inconsistencies; Voci artistic director Genevieve Bernard’s goal was to create an otherworldly environment inspired by the Victorian era, not a stale reproduction of it. – Leanna Robinson
