This program at the Hammer Museum will explore the food, culture and art of China's teahouses.

From the event website:

China's teahouses have long been places where family and friends have gathered to sip tea, share ideas, and watch performances of local art forms. The Hammer recreates this tradition with an evening of tea, snacks, music, and storytelling, provided by master artists of the Beijing drum song (京韵大鼓) tradition from Tianjin, China.
The event is co-presented by UCLA's Center for Chinese Studies, Confucius Institute and Department of Ethnomusicology, as well as the Confucius Institute at the University of Michigan.
