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)
