Thrilling, surprising, cross-art form tour-de-force for Sydney, Melbourne & Canberra



WINNER – Most Promising Emerging Company, NZ Fringe 2016

Pedal hero image MEDIUM

Fresh from creating a critical and popular sensation at the NZ Fringe, emerging star of the cross-art form stage Eliza Sanders (directed by brother Charles) tours Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra from September with two stunning shows: Pedal & Castles.

In these two solo works, Eliza brings all her dazzling artistic skills to the table. Text, movement, her physically virtuosic dance, visual art influences and song combine to thrill audiences in an intimate theatrical experience.

House of Sand ate up the 2016 NZ Fringe with two new dance/theatre works, winning three awards and seven nominations. Pedal is the company’s first work and the prequel to Castles, winner of two NZ Fringe awards and nominated for four including Outstanding Performer and Best In Fringe.

Together, Pedal and Castles chart two parts of an archetypal journey of discovery – in a completely atypical way. Like absurd stream-of-consciousness writing, Eliza finds alogical, illogical and semi-logical connections between ideas and memories — a hive of strangely interconnected questions and musings, from the silly to the sublime. See absurd ending, see strange beginnings, see both. You choose!

With special prices available for the double bill.
