About this event

This work is designed to be welcoming for all and is wheelchair accessible. If you have access needs of any kind please get in touch - for a more detailed description, to ask us any questions, or if you’d like us to prepare anything ahead of time to make your visit more comfortable.

This is a liminal sonic-ritual art environment inspired by the life and spirit of 12th-century visionary Hildegard von Bingen.

A transformative space where grieving and loss meet ecstasy and exultation.

A cleansing without washing.

A touching without being touched.

A multisensory experience of intimacy, listening, stillness and communing with inner and outer worlds through sound, touch, taste and sense of the body in space.

Drawing community back together again at a time when we have all lost so much. A preparation for viridity.

A piece of speculative architecture that functions as sonic installation, instrument and imagined communal bathing space.

A neurodivergent and biophilic approach to design.

An initiation into a new world.

We enter into mythic time as past and present turn in the circle.

Bathe in mesmerising beauty and join with oblivion before returning to new life.

Featuring a sonic journey created by Nwando Ebizie.

The sonic journey is a response to the Hildegard piece ‘Favus Distillans’, a rich, sensuous song by Hildegard that exults in the legend of St Ursula, who along with 11,000 virgins died rather than submit to marriage. The song encapsulated death, rebirth and fecund fertility.
