House of Sand’s Castles is the second solo from emerging star of the cross-artform stage Eliza Sanders. In these works, Eliza brings all her artistic skills to the table. Text, movement, her physically virtuosic dance, visual art influences and song.
’45 minutes of weird and wonderful; an exorcism of randomness, a one-woman schizophrenic romp It is also hilarious (underlined for emphasis) with points of poignancy that give you little moments of “the feels”.’ – Jillian Davey, Theatreview
‘Occasionally an artist emerges who possess the thrill to surprise. Eliza Sanders is such an artist… Sanders’ work will offer a new experience in the lexicon of dance. She emerges as a refreshing new talent in contemporary Australian dance.’ – (Peter Wilkins, Canberra Critics Circle)
Castles charts the second part of an archetypal journey of discovery… in a completely a-typical way. Like absurd stream-of-consciousness writing, Eliza finds a-logical, illogical and semi-logical connections between ideas and memories — a hive of strangely interconnected questions and musings — from the silly to the sublime.http://www.dancetrain.com.au/events/castles/ical/
