from the artistic director
Hello!

We are delighted to announce that Restless has been shortlisted for two Ruby Awards!

Our acclaimed production of Intimate Space which was such a hit of the 2017 Adelaide Festival, is shortlisted as Best Work and as Arts Innovation and Enterprise.

We are up against some stiff competition in both categories but it is wonderful to have this recognition of the quality of our work. All the dancers and everyone involved with Intimate Space can be justly proud that their work is seen by their peers as being on a par with the best that South Australia has to offer.

And you can vote for Intimate Space too! Voting for the People’s Choice Ruby Award is live online now. Please do go to the Ruby Awards website and vote for Intimate Space now!

An excerpt from Intimate Space will also be Showcased at the Australian Performing Ats Market (APAM) in Brisbane in February. This will be a brilliant opportunity to present the work to other festivals who might be interested in this innovative and imaginative site specific work.

Restless has also had recent success with two funding opportunities:
1/. Creative Partnerships Australia through their Plus1 program have agreed to match donations made towards the costs of making Zizanie, Meryl Tankard’s new work for Restless, and general touring costs.
2/. Arts South Australia are supporting the company to continue its highly successful association with the SA School for Vision Impaired in 2018.
For more details about both of these please see below.

Thank you so much.
Michelle Ryan Artistic Director

Ruby Awards Shortlistings
The Ruby Awards recognise outstanding achievement in South Australia’s arts and culture sector. We are especially delighted that Intimate Space has been shortlisted for two awards: Best Work and as Arts Innovation and Enterprise. It is fantastic that following Intimate Space’s Helpmann Award nomination as Best Dance Work at a national level, the production has now also been recognised at the State level.

The Best Work shortlist is:

  • SAUL – Adelaide Festival
  • The Secret River – Adelaide Festival and State Theatre Company SA
  • Intimate Space – Restless Dance Theatre
  • 19 Weeks – Tiffany Lyndall Knight, Emily Steel, Daisy Brown and Mario Späte
  • Rumpelstiltskin – Windmill Theatre Co and State Theatre Company SA

The Arts Innovation and Enterprise shortlist is:

  • Backbone – Gravity & Other Myths
  • Slingsby’s Market Development and Giving Circles – Slingsby Theatre
  • Intimate Space – Restless Dance Theatre
  • 19 Weeks – Tiffany Lyndall Knight, Emily Steel, Daisy Brown and Mario Späte

Stiff competition for Restless but, as with the Helpmann Award Nomination, it is an honour to be shortlisted and the quality of the competition speaks volumes about the quality of the company’s work. Congratulations to all the shortlisted nominees.

People’s Choice
Voting for the People’s Choice Ruby Award is live online now. Please do go to the Ruby Awards website and vote for Intimate Space now!
You can vote for Intimate Space any time between now and 5pm on December 1st. The Ruby Awards will be presented at the Queen’s Theatre on December 2nd.

APAM

Intimate Space Showcase at APAM

A shortened version of Intimate Space will be presented in the Sofitel Hotel in Brisbane as part of the next APAM in February. The Sofitel is where most of the APAM delegates will be staying so this is a brilliant opportunity to show a meaningful excerpt of the work in an appropriate setting to festival and venue programmers from around the world. Michelle will recreate sections of the work with a mixture of Restless dancers and some local dancers. And, just like the original production presented in the Hilton Adelaide, it will be a logistical challenge to mount the work within a functioning major hotel – but we will of course rise to the challenge magnificently!
Many thanks to Arts South Australia for providing some additional once-off funding to make this possible.

Funding Successes

Creative Partnerships Australia Funding for Zizanie
Creative Partnerships Australia through their Plus1 program have agreed to match donations made towards the costs of making and then touring Zizanie, Meryl Tankard’s new work for Restless.
In order to prepare ourselves for future national and international touring of Zizanie, we are undertaking a major fundraising campaign. We will raise $25,000 by May 2018 and we have secured private donors who are committed to matching this dollar for dollar so it will become $50,000. In addition, Creative Partnerships Australia will match all this funding through their Plus1 program. They will match our $50,000 so it becomes $100,000. So every donation we secure before May 18th will be quadrupled. Our donations drive will be called: Restless Goes Global! Following this campaign, we will be well resourced to respond to the touring invitations we are receiving and our artists, young people with disability, will have the life-changing opportunity of touring.

Arts South Australia funding for SASVI
Restless has been collaborating with the SA School for Vision Impaired on a project called Shared Visions since 2014. We have conducted two extended residencies in the school in 2014 and 2015 and the students are currently coming to Restless for sessions in our studio.
We were successful in an application to Arts South Australia for Community Arts and Cultural Development Projects for Organisations for $11,380 in funding to support continuing Shared Visions in 2018.
