SAND a creative development co-presented with Flowstate

  • Flowstate Pavilion Brisbane City, QLD, 4101 Australia (map)



SAND explores the weathered fragments of our past, embedded in landscape and built environments. Inspired by the classic Japanese novel “Woman in the Dunes”, this contemporary, cross-cultural work explores what happens in the aftermath of dramatic upheaval and celebrates the beauty of impermanence.

Join Belloo Creative and the SAND collaborating artists this November and December for the making of a new cross-cultural, contemporary theatre work in the Flowstate Pavilion.

Stage 1 of the development (6-10 November) explores and tests the scale of sand play and sand installations during an all-ages, all-abilities creative development.

Stage 2 (4-8 December) brings artists into the space culminating in a free public showing of the new dance theatre work in development – SAND.

SAND is an international collaboration that draws from Japanese classic literature, the 2011 tsunami and Indigenous connections to sand and stories of sand mining in Australia to create an original, contemporary performance.

SAND is part of Flowstate’s IN THE ZONE residency
