Art For Art's Sake

DescriptionCould there exist a world without art? This would surely be a world without consciousness. ART FOR ART’S SAKE is the 4th 60 minute theatre show by Sydney playwright Sage Godrei. The phenomena of mind over matter takes control, as we observe for our main character Fran, how being an artist seems more of a burden than a blessing. We traverse the Norse legend of Odin and the sacrifices he made to unveil the secrets of the underworld. This piece invokes a sense of wonder as we embrace Fran’s artistic ambitions, through surrealism and choreographed ensemble sequences.
We investigate the values society ascribes on corporate identity and the dalliance of artistic drive. Issues with adult literacy are examined, as the inner worlds of the character’s psyche are dramatised. This play dissects the meaning of success for two siblings, Fran and her brother George.
