Saturday, October 9, 3—6 pm

being-sound aims to change how we listen. The project balances on the threshold between music and sound, between recorded samples and live input, between acoustic instruments and digital sources. 

For this performance, being-sound will use binaural microphones and wireless (“Silent Disco”) headphones. A warm organic White Peony (Bai Mudan) Tea will be served. (Contains caffeine).


There will be three 30-minute performances (3pm, 4pm, and 5pm) with an audience limit of 12 per performance. There will be eight advance tickets per time slot – to be reserved online.   Four additional tickets for each slot will be held for the day of the event on a first-come-first-serve-basis. 


The Mobile Tea House project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered in Columbia County by the Greene County Council on the Arts dba CREATE Council for Resources to Enrich the Arts, Technology & Education.

About PS21

Established in Chatham, NY in 2006, PS21 supports innovative performing artists and creators and introduces their work to a broader audience, while also providing the surrounding region with opportunities for arts engagement regardless of economic status, cultural background, and age.


Five acres of PS21's 100+ acres are developed; the rest are meadows and woodlands. Situated near the theater are the Dance Barn, a rehearsal and performance venue, and two artists’ residences accommodating sixteen individuals. The PS21 property is also host to the Chatham Farm Animal Rescue. PS21's new theater and rural campus are important resources for both visiting artists and the community, optimized for the public's enjoyment and to encourage citizen expression and participation. 


The 350-seat theater is a state-of-the-art, green facility offering resident makers and performers the tools and flexibility for successful innovation and collaboration in the development of sophisticated multi-media work. Few other US facilities are able to provide this level of technical support. PS21 operates year-round, supporting performances by and residencies for dancers, choreographers, musicians, composers, actors and creators. The summer season is PS21's public highlight, during which a full calendar of performances is augmented with a myriad of events and workshops, many of which are free of charge and involve community collaboration with the gifted artists in residence.
