What do childhood memories mean to you? How far does this memory feel to you? Would you like to immerse yourself once again for a few minutes in a space of memory and recollect such a personal remembrance of innocence and safety?
Have you ever watched a show in your swimsuit?
Bathtub Memory Project was created by 5 artists with different artistic backgrounds aiming to create a personal moment for the spectator - an artistic venture where music, image and the overall mood of the installation give the spectator the opportunity to have a complete sensory experience. In a world moving fast, in an adults' world we invite the spectator to come on his own and let himself go for a few moments to a place where time expands and childhood finds room to grow again and give birth to new associations hopes and dreams.
The performance is exclusively addressed to only one spectator at a time. One has to book in advance in order to participate and bring a swimsuit as he will lie in a bathtub filled with warm water during the performance.
