“Epic Tea Time with Alan Rickman” comes from a video series called Portraits in Dramatic Time, which features “an array of glacially paced performances of theater artists and actors.” According to its creator David Michalek, the portraits, each offering “a physical metaphor for an emotional condition,” were originally projected onto a building facade at Lincoln Center in New York City during a 2011 festival. This particular portrait shows actor Alan Rickman (you know him from Harry Potter, Dogma, Die Hard, etc.) doing epic violence to a cup of tea. As one YouTuber put it, “It’s a bit like watching God create the universe. A very angry God.”
