Restless is thrilled to be delivering a presentation and 3 days of workshops as part of Connect2Abilities, the Inclusive Performing Arts Collaborative Symposium, in Seoul in April 2020. The company will also reconnect with a recent guest dancer from Intimate Space at the Seoul Street Arts Festival. Michelle will choreograph a duet Correlation with Jianna and the guest dancer to be presented on the final day of the Symposium.
Restless has returned from a sold-out season of Intimate Space at the internationally acclaimed Seoul Street Arts Festival. The production brought together 4 Korean artists with disability and two key Korean coordinators along with a touring party of 17 from Restless to celebrate diversity and cultural collaboration on the world stage.
Festival audiences attending Intimate Space were resolutely engaged with the honest, emotionally surprising vignettes presented in unexpected places throughout the New Seoul Hotel.
The Company has recently completed a very exciting Creative Development of Rewards for the Tribe directed by Chunky Move Artistic Director Antony Hamilton. The work is a three way collaboration with Candoco Dance Company in the UK and Chunky Move in Melbourne.
