We are living through a global pandemic that can bring up feelings of doubt, fear and uncertainty. Isolation is encouraged for safety and security, but, how will we learn to be together again? How will we be able to feel present and safe with others?

“The Cost of Entry is a Heartbeat” invites people to take part in a ritual of collective rest. Drawing on sounds recorded in thermal baths around Budapest and the contribution of heart beats from people attending the piece, Salima Punjani has created a space which invites rest and collective healing through the interconnectedness of our heartbeats. It is an experience that bridges the individual and public ritual of bathing, reminding us how being in relationship contributes to well being.

COVID-19: Masks are mandatory and the piece has been developed to allow for social distancing throughout. You will be asked to sanitize your hands before entry. If you’re feeling unwell, please consider the health of others. The experience allows for up to 4 people at a time to participate and registration is required through the above Google forms.

Accessibility: If you have any accessibility needs such as sign-language interpretation please get in touch with info@spatialsoundinstitute.com as soon as possible to discuss how we can support you in visiting the studio.

Please note the building has multiple levels of stairs and no elevator. There are gender neutral bathrooms available.

This project has been made possible with support from the Canada Council for the Arts and le Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec.
