Thank you for Booking SWIMMING HOME
PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR SHOW
SET AN ALLARM FOR YOUR CHOSEN TIME. ONCE THE ALLARM RINGS PLEASE PRESS PLAY ON THE TRACK
MAKE SURE YOU ARE READY BEFORE THE ALLARM GOES OFF.
For the show you will need: a swimsuit, a swimming goggles and a towel. The piece is to be experienced through your phone via headphones in your own bathroom.
If you are experiencing the piece in your BATH: make sure you leave enough time to fill it up before the show start time. DO NOT immerse yourself just yet, you will be instructed to do so at the right time.
If you are experiencing the piece in a SHOWER: please find a glass and place it upside down over the drain of your shower to block it momentarily and please make sure you have a plug for your sink too.
If you have mobility issues pre-set a chair next to the bath and feel free to use it for your comfort.
Make sure your bathroom is warm for the show.
If you are concerned about your device' safety please connect it to an external speaker. Please be aware that the sound design contains elements of binaural sound which will not be detectable though a regular speaker. The show takes in consideration the safety of your equipment and instructs you on the best way to keep your phone safe at all times.
A couple of options to experience the show with minimum water waste.
1. Place a pan in the sink to gather water and re-use it at the end of the show. If you are doing the shower version you can use the water gathered in the pan at the beginning of the show, to fill up the sink when instructed to.
2. You can turn the taps on before you are instructed to and use your imagination. Please make sure you do turn them on and off even if it is for a short time.
Breathe. Dive in.
**MAKE SURE YOUR DEVICE IS CHARGED, THE VOLUME TURNED UP AND THAT YOU HAVE AN INTERNET CONNECTION**
