There is genuine interaction between the performer and the audience. In the end the spectators are even let to stage for a bath! BabySauna has been appraised by audience especially for the combination of movement, sound and communication.
"BabySauna 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 fire, 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." / とくに幼い子どもたちを対象としたダンスパフォーマンスです。サウナは、日本でも人気になっている代表的なフィンランドの文化。霧立つ森を通って、サウナまでの夢のような旅に観客を連れて行ってくれます。小さな羽音、川のせせらぎ、はじける薪の音、水しぶき、深呼吸…これらがリズムと音楽を形作ります。小石、バケツ、タオルを使った遊びや、体を洗って乾かす動作が、すべてダンスになります。エンディング後は、観客もステージでお風呂を楽しめます。
