Intimate Space 2017

Intimate Space is a series of experiential site-specific solo and duet works of dance theatre presented within a hotel.

On this travelling adventure, a Hotels sophisticated bar and lush rooms with views are contrasted by the stark undertones of the nooks and crannies of its back-of-house operations. Guided by an evocative soundscape by Jason Sweeney, the physical conversation takes a similarly diverse journey. Guests will witness a tender and cheeky duet in a private room then an urgent physical explosion in the laundry. All looks neat and tidy but what is going on behind the scenes of these emotional dance vignettes?

Presented in a transient place unsuspecting guests unknowingly form the backdrop to the performance by going about their everyday business in the hotel space.

Challenging themes of visibility, authority, self-worth and relationships, the dancers ask you to uncover meaning in the delicately crafted movement. Both elegant and humorous, be surprised and enchanted by this exquisite performance experience.

The Restless dancers are charming, engaging and unique. The individuality of the artists is a major strength of the company. They may not fit the stereotypical dancer image but it is in their difference that you see their beauty and creativity. Audience members will be surprised, perplexed and enchanted by the exquisite performance experience.
