Sam Routledge and Dylan Sheridan Hobart

Crush is an immersive live artwork for auto car washes that explores ritual cleansing for the robot age.

Created by theatre maker Sam Routledge and composer Dylan Sheridan, audiences experience the work from inside a vehicle as it is being cleaned.

Evoking the drive in cinema, audiences tune into the soundtrack via the FM radio in their vehicle as it is transmitted live on site. As the large automated robot goes about its work, Sheridan’s score syncs to its movements, in a powerful look at the future of our relationships with machines.
