Ecoute Pour Voir

One duet and seven solos, scattered in space and dancing simultaneously. Equipped with headphones and an MP3 player, one dancer and one audience member share a three- minute choreographic exchange. Audience members can experience different intimate performances by moving from one dancer to another, but can also enjoy the totality of a shifting and dynamic ensemble from a distance. Co-Production by Restless Dance Theatre, Maï(g)wenn et les Orteils and Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe Choreographic concept developed by Emmanuel Jouthe Artist...

Exposed

Exposed explores the intimacies that constitute our lives, our actions, our thoughts, our traumas, our desires, our failures. Directed by Michelle Ryan, Exposed reunites the successful Seeing Through Darkness team. The work explores vulnerability, uncertainty and risk. In Exposed, the breath is a metaphor for feeling threatened or safe, agitated or calm. The sonic possibilities of breath will be explored as part of the audio and soundscape. "It is only when we let ourselves be vulnerable - exposed - that people can see who we really are. When we share our full humanity - flaws, beauty, stren...

Seeing Through Darkness

Zizanie

"A show of beauty and perfection." – The Advertiser "Zizanie is a whole lot of vivid zaniness, full of good spirit, lively imagination, warm heart, and sweet hope." – Barefoot Review "Zizanie is a beautiful work for adults alone as much as families. And a timely reminder of the power of opening doors rather than building walls." – Fest Mag "Imaginative, exhilarating, life-affirming and a little zany." – InDaily "Full and bursting with wit and whimsy." – Limelight "Zizanie is delightful; a clever series of images, vignettes and scenes that are woven together to ce...

In The Balance

"It was a heart-warming and entertaining evening, lots of energy and sass, with a powerful finish. I loved the show, and it left me wanting to put more dance in my life!" - Karen Bailey, The Clothesline In The Balance was presented as part of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival at the Dunstan Playhouse with The Audreys playing live. The show explored the intricacies of how people behave and interact at a party. We stumble, bounce and back flip on the awkward jorneys we make to become who we are. We are in the balance and realise our dreams when we party on the dance floor with a no fear attitude....

Touched

Touched was developed by the dancers of the Youth Ensemble working with Artistic Director Michelle Ryan. Touched was presented in November 2015 at the Odeon Theatre in Norwood as part of a double bill called Naturally. At times we referenced friendships, sibling relationships and romantic encounters as well as the darker side of confusion and loneliness. The overriding response was always to support each other, in whatever way possible. It is an amazing quality to have from the entire ensemble. Restless has always had a fascination with what it means to be human and how as individuals we inte...

Creating The Spectacle

"…Restless Dance Theatre – who begin the performance in ebb and flow fashion, expressing fear, curiosity and, ultimately, admiration for the water – Creating the Spectacle doesn’t look at disability from the eyes of those who see a lack of something, but rather from those who know their art is an exciting vision and should, must, be shared." - InDaily Restless Dance was commissioned by the Adelaide Film Festival to develop a 10 minute introductory dance sequence for Creating the Spectacle, a work featuring UK artist Sue Austin performing in her adapted underwater wheelchair. The work...
