Summer Lovin' (we had us a blast)


What a Sunny Summer it's been for House of Sand (if a little exhausting)...

Dear Friends,
We’re touching base to thank you for being part of a great summer festival season for House of Sand, and to let you know what is in store over the coming months.

2018 has been a HUGE year so far: House of Sand has presented works to critical and public acclaim at the Adelaide Fringe and the New Zealand Fringe and started development on a brand new work whilst in Adelaide thanks to a residency at LWD Dance Hub.
Since Festival season came to a close, rehearsals have commenced for Revolt She Said. Revolt Again. and pre-production is in full swing for Welcome The Bright World

We are also thrilled to announce that Creative Partnerships Australia has invited us to be a part of Match Lab - meaning every dollar donated to our projects until 30th May 2018 is matched DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR!

During the first three months of this year..
12 Performers have appeared in
16 House of Sand performances. 
7 of those artists have flown around Aus and NZ
on 11 different planes. 
and 4 designers have made all those artists look amazing. 
 And Eliza and I have sent exactly 1,000,000 e-mails and had 42 moments of moderate anxiety each!! 

** all of the above facts are true except for the emails.. it was probably more but we lost count!

Read on for the full breakdown! 

much love,
Charles, Eliza & the whole House of Sand team
