Baby Sauna

BabySauna takes the spectators to a fantastic journey through misty forests into the sauna, the sacred place for Finns. The little hums, hissing sounds of steam, crackles of fire, water splashes and deep breathing evolve to rhythms and music. The play with pebbles, water buckets and towels, as well as the pleasure of washing up and drying, they all create the dance. The performer is in contact with the spectators’ reactions and finally, after the finishing lullaby, the audience is let to the stage for wash. BabySauna is based on movement, sound and kinesthetic stimulations. There are no language or cultural barriers.
