Co-Artistic Directors Charles Sanders and Eliza Sanders work together and separately in a broad range of styles, in many places - principally Adelaide, Wellington, Sydney, and Canberra ...and wherever else the wind takes us. 

House of Sand's work traverses, thematically as well as physically:  sometimes it's political, sometimes personal, usually a little pensive and always a little absurd. It embraces the very global and the very local.

Our inspiration comes from our observations of the world and the people around us:
A melding of minds is central to our thinking, and so we work with a broad range of collaborators.

Uniting it all is a signature expressionist aesthetic and a visceral performance style that results in electric audience experiences.

 

Beyond House of Sand we both have substantial independent practices - this website also serves as a portal to media and reference for those practices.
