Hope Springs Eternal is a unique international collaboration between UK arts mavericks The Brick Box, the Baltic Circle Festival and the people of Kannelmaki, Helsinki, Finland. This unique four day residency will take place in June 2018, re-imagining Sitratori Square as a magical place for transformation and celebration through the medium of water and the creation of a mass public bathing ritual.
Everyone will be welcome to immerse themselves in this gentle, uplifting, playful and empowering experience. Audiences, artists and local residents will come together to create this interactive live artwork; part performance, part ritual, part dreamscape. Expect hot tubs, bubbles, water divination, music and above all joy!
In April 2018, a Brick Box delegation – Rosie, Eleanor, Chemaine and Lisa – will be visiting Finland to meet with local collaborators and develop ideas through creative workshops. More news soon!
