HAMMAM performed at the Tanzmesse festival in Germany
The piece HAMMAM by Javiera Peón-Veiga will be presented at the Tanzmesse contemporary dance festival in Cologne, Germany. The work was created using a sound design that includes wetlands field recordings from the Soundlapse project. The piece proposes the experience of a collective purge inspired by the traditional practices of sweat or heat baths present in different geographies and cultures throughout history. In an immersive environment, the work explores water vapour and sound as environmental bodies, tactile media, and the bathroom as a social healing practice between the intimate and the public. Here you can see a short video teaser of the work.
