Simplicity, serenity, harmony, achievement of great subtlety through entirely natural means - these are the main values of
Chanoyu, the traditional Japanese tea ceremony.

Chanoyu deals with an apparently quite different theme: a typical conjugal quarrel, with instant-tea and with the TV set running. But all the same, the seemingly lost harmony is there: Under the visible surface - visualized by minimal gestures and glances, by the moving of objects and the sounds they produce - beauty and harmony are concealed.
