Work-In-Development

SAND is a new physical theatre work co-produced by Belloo, NORPA and Idiot Savant (Japan), which went through a creative development at NORPA and at Flowstate, South Bank at the end of 2018. This contemporary cross-cultural work explores how bodies relate with one another in the resistance and shifting nature of sand. SAND draws from Japanese classic literature, the 2011 tsunami and Indigenous connections to sand to create an original, contemporary performance.  

Belloo’s deep connection to Japan and our intercultural expertise was recognised by the Australia Council who invited Belloo to join the 2017, 2018 and 2019 delegations to the Tokyo Performing Arts Market (TPAM).   

SAND will premiere in 2020-21 and we are seeking presenting partners. To express an interest or request more production information, please contact us.
