House of Sand’s signature melding of forms is back in town! Manage Your Expectations takes the idea of the ‘trigger warning’ to its absurdist extreme using humour to question how ‘informed’ consent can really be and asking, ‘How much do you really want to know?’ Be prepared to go on a hilarious and moving journey using a unique blend of dance, theatre, live film, clowning, and logic-bending philosophising. Full of vigour and energy with a dash of confrontation and chaos, come and experience this bold, thought-provoking new show created and performed by multi award-winning maverick of the stage Eliza Sanders. House of Sand is the brainchild of Canberra bred siblings Eliza Sanders and Charlie Allanah. They create madcap and visceral performance works across theatre, dance, music, cabaret, and performance art.
