House of Sand & Belco Arts present the World Premiere Season of ‘That Was Friday’
That Was Friday is a new contemporary performance work by House of Sand about distance and connectedness, familiarity and strangeness. Premiering at Belco Arts from 23-26 November, the work features a global and multidisciplinary group of collaborators and is the company’s most ambitious work to date.
An Australian family has become geographically dispersed. Whilst each have created their own communities in their adopted homes and global networks, as a family they have drifted apart. Something has happened to the bonds that once held them close. In order to reconnect, they must relearn how they fit together.
The brainchild of sibling creative partnership Charley Sanders and Eliza Sanders, House of Sand creates madcap, visceral performance work with a signature expressionistic style in and across artworks including theatre, dance, music, cabaret and visual and performance art.
At its heart, That Was Friday is a celebration of community, wherever it is you find it. It’s a tender fusion of dance and theatre featuring a talented and world-recognised cast; including Sara Zwangobani (The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power) and Lachlan Martin (AKA Tilly Capulet) with a score composed by award-winning producer Mario Späte (Tkay Maidza, Allday, Montaigne and Megan Washington, amongst others).
Through dance and intimate storytelling, the diverse global ensemble shares moments of finding and losing connection. Tender and ambitious, That Was Friday is a warm hug on a cold night. Come and celebrate community, wherever it is you find it.
“Eliza and Charley Sanders are important artists who give us an alternate view of the world,” said Suzy Wrong, Suzy goes see & Auditorium (UK)
