As a concept for enhanced visibility and as a tool for artistic and business networking – we developed something that already exists – a sauna.

The sauna has several aspects of relevance for discussions in contemporary stage art; embodied experience, naturalism, performance, performative actions, ritual, participation, central perspective, transgression, cleansing (Catharsis) … etc. Institutet‘s “Sauna on Wheels” can be a place for performances (a stage), but it can also be a social sculpture and a luxury wellness experience, suitable as well as surprising on both the business meeting as well as the art festival.

The sauna project is funded by
