A performance within a performance?

The notions of the 'Chado' (Japanese tea ceremony or 'way of the tea') being a performance in itself is something I'm reading about at the moment. I'm looking for ways to explore this concept within the framework of my installation, perhaps promoting questions about the idea of the music people create using the tea set being a performance within a performance, and what sort of significance that has.

Idea's of the tea room itself being a stage of sorts, with the whole performance only viewable to the select few who are actually involved are also conceptual area's I'm looking at exploring sonically in the piece.
