Entry DescriptionHAMMAM 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 vapor and sound as environmental bodies, tactile media, and the bathroom as a social healing practice between the intimate and the public.
HAMMAM is a transdisciplinary research and creation project that generates intersections between dance, sound art, performance and writing, developing pieces in various formats, such as sound capsules, an editorial publication, a dance performance, body practices and vaporous concerts.
HAMMAM invites us to live a multisensory experience where each element is worked from neuroscience. Vapor, light, and sound were designed on the scientific basis of the effects on the nervous system. The different electromagnetic frequencies of light and their effects on the body were investigated, as well as environmental inspirations around light, steam, sky, clouds and water.
The light sources used are infrared light, laser, ellipsoidal LED 4000K and PAR LED RGB.
