Until the 4th of May 2018, Restless has an incredible opportunity to quadruple your donation.

We have conceived of a multi-level matched funding campaign called Restless Goes Global. Fancy.

We have set ourselves a target of $25,000.

Two of our current donors to Restless Dance Theatre – James Darling AM and Lesley Forwood – have generously committed to matching our $25,000 when we make our target to bring our total to $50,000.

In addition, we were successful in receiving funding from Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus1 matched funding program who have committed to matching the whole $50,000 dollar for dollar so we aim to raise $100,000 in total.

This is a rare and brilliant opportunity!

Click here to donate now. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Restless would like to graciously thank all of its donors for their kind donations to date. We appreciate your support.

Restless Dance is one of a handful of Australian companies which defy pigeon-holing. The work they do with performers of differing physical and intellectual abilities is useful and heart-warming: but the point is that the work itself is exceptionally beautiful and highly skilled, often funny, and always moving – Robyn Archer (Patron)
