Eyes

The world is an interesting place. Particularly places such regional South Australia where you can discover that theatre doesn’t need actors on a stage and the end of days could be a much more than doomsday preppers and zombies.

The creative geniuses of Sandpit have teamed up with other cutting-edge artists to develop a completely new type of experiential theatre in regional South Australia. Following residencies in Mt Gambier, Renmark and Roxby Downs  the team is preparing to premiere the project in Mt Gambier in 2017.

Be prepared for state of the art sound design in your headphones while taking in the natural surrounds and find yourself deciding what should be preserved, what should be destroyed and what things you’d miss in the event of the apocalypse.

For more information about the artists, their process and the trail sessions for the public and how you can get involved stay tuned to “The Dirt”.
