Sensations of Maintenance

ArtsLab Western and North West Sydney

maintenance /ˈmeɪn.tən.əns/

Noun – the process of preserving a condition or situation or the state of being preserved – a situation in which something continues to exist or is not allowed to become less

Sensations of Maintenance is a devised theatre work exploring the living process of continuity and change in our lives. What happens when we learn to unthread, listen and reveal what quietly maintains us and our relations? When given the choice, can we learn to let go and re-thread new ways of relating to what has come before?  Through fragments and threads of sound, memory and movement the piece seeks to take apart and play with the frames we set up for ourselves and those that have been setup for us by others.

The piece will explore the manic, mysterious and mercurial moment we find ourselves in when we are confronted with choice and the possibility of letting something fall away.


A season pass includes entry to all three of the ArtsLab Western and North West Sydney shows including Red Soup, CURBSQUATTERS and Sensations of Maintenance, as well as the One Self over the Crismon Nest (ArtsLab Gallery).

Single tickets are also available to each show and include entry to One Self over the Crismon Nest (ArtsLab Gallery).
