Originally commissioned for Compass Festival 2016, WARMTH instantly became a festival favourite and has since toured the UK extensively. We’re delighted to bring it back to Leeds this year where Bethany will be experimenting with smoke sauna experiences for the cooler Autumn temperatures.
Inspired by Finnish sauna culture, Bethany Wells has built a mobile, wood-fired sauna in a converted horse trailer, functioning as a space for experimental performance and impromptu gatherings.
Timber-lined, with wood smoke rising from the chimney, it brings a nomadic presence to the street. By inviting people to step out of their day and into the WARMTH, it offers a liberating communal experience.
Appealing to all the senses, this warm, fragrant, subtly-lit haven creates a pocket of Scandinavia in Leeds City Centre.
An accompanying tent based exhibition about smoke saunas will be available to enjoy.
Commissioned by Compass Festival.
