Edinburgh Fringe: The Sauna

A wordless story of a woman’s body set in the mythical realm of the Finnish sauna.

In Finnish tradition, the sauna is a solemn place; a scene of cleansing, contemplation, birth and death. According to myth every sauna had its own spirit, whom visitors should care for and respect. The Sauna is a story of an old woman whose intention to die is distracted by an irritating sauna spirit. This mythical creature evokes her physical memories and takes her through the chapters of her womanhood as she considers the end of her life. The Sauna is a speechless mask and object theatre performance accompanied with live sound effects and original music.

Performances daily except 8th, 13th and 20th August
