BabySauna takes you to the world of the original Finnish sauna and its magical sounds, scents, rhythms and colors. 

There is only one performer on stage. She escorts the audience in and makes sure that all feel safe and comfortable.

She 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 re, 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.
