from the artistic director
Hello. Thank you so much to all the generous donors who have already contributed to our Give Me Five campaign. We are approaching our $35,000 target. So far we have raised $29,250. But approaching the target is not the same as making it. We have to reach the target by May 9th in order to have the funds matched by Creative Partnerships Australia. Remember, all donations over $2 are tax deductible so as we approach the end of the financial year there is a benefit both for you as a donor and for our dancers who get to make their own work.
I really believe in the debut – the dancers direct project. It is a wonderful opportunity for five of our artists with disability to work with the Restless dancers to make their own short piece of dance theatre. We have brilliant dance professionals lined up to work with our artists as mentors and to support their creativity: Nadia Cusimano, Lisa Heaven, Larissa McGowan, Gina Rings and Peter Sheedy.
It is such a great development opportunity not just for the five emerging directors but for all our dancers. Please help by either donating to Give Me Five or by sharing the cool video on social media – or both!
