Community Projects

Sanctum Theatre works with communities to devise performances in everyday spaces. We use bodies and shadows, sound light, puppets and masks. We build something from nothing and nothing from something. We re-animate and re-mystify local landscapes in the communal imagination. Participants are challenged in a nurturing space to achieve what they think is not possible.

We have worked with DVA Theatre (Banyule), Fusion Theatre (Dandenong), Springvale Community House, Hawthorn Community House, Kew Uniting Church, Montsalvat and Eltham Community House. Artistic director, Lachlan Plain, also has extensive experience working with communities in Swan Hill, Sunshine, Croydon, Thailand and South Korea, as a People Puppet Project director for Snuff Puppets.

Sanctum Theatre was awarded an honourary mention at the Victorian Government Live Local Awards for their Enchanted Ark zero project at Hawthorn Community House in 2010.
