When did you last go bowling? Are you a little rusty? Perhaps a beginner? How would you feel if gutter guards and ramps were installed in advance to prevent any possibility of your failing to hit the pins?

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.

Safe from Harm was the first Restless Dance Theatre professional, touring work. The world is a dangerous place: enter at your own risk. Safe from Harm investigated the relationships between safety, risk, fear and danger. In a world obsessed with security and safety, Safe from Harm looked at the concept of dignity of risk versus duty of care. We want to be free but we need to be safe. Directors Notes ‘She has learned the hard way that there is no safety. That there never was any safety. So it is the illusion of safety that she misses, nothing more. Ruefully, she conjures what has long ...

Starry Eyed was a dance theatre work about life pathways, direction, choice and ambition. The dancers questioned where they have come from, where they are going and what they are doing right now. Starry Eyed pressed ‘pause’ on the living-cycle and explored how the future is made up of the past and how the decisions we make today affect the futures we wish to create. Starry Eyed was not so much about what the dreams actually are but more about why we have them and how we include them in our life planning and decision making. Starry Eyed was about what makes us ambitious about reaching...

Headlong looked at leaving school, that rush into a major life change and a changing world where there’s nothing familiar to hold on to. Headlong looked at how rites of passage, with their rituals and symbols, help this process of transition. Headlong began as an in-school workshop project for senior students at the Ashford Annexe of Daws Road High School. Headlong was first performed at the Queen’s Theatre as part of the Come Out Festival in March 2001. Headlong was remounted in October 2002 at the Odeon Theatre in Norwood, Adelaide, with a presentation and promotion project wrapped...

Proximal 2001

Proximal was perhaps the ‘purest’ dance performance that the company has so far produced. A production that for the first time combined video projection as an integral part of the performance. Direction  Ingrid Voorendt Design Gaelle Mellis Reviews Proximal exists solely to express in dance a sense of being within one's body; all the senses, feelings and gestures the body makes with no deliberate intellectual intent. All production elements reflect on each other, reinforcing a sense of the uninhibited, the instinctive, the personal at its happiest and most positive. Proximal is un...

the days allotted to me 2000

the days allotted to me traveled deep into the heart of disability culture and tackled the paradox that having a disability is often assumed to be gloomy – a misconception the company has worked hard to counter – and yet the sorrowful side of the culture is bordering on being taboo. The work looked at the idea that we are a product of past generations and at how we deal with what we inherit genetically and socially, and whether we choose to rebel against this, deny it or celebrate our individuality. Directors' Notes the days allotted to me, like all Restless projects, is the creativ...

Precious 1999 & 2000

Precious looked at the ways in which all people create and make sense of their personal worlds. Precious was the first production directed for Restless by Ingrid Voorendt. It was developed in two stages: A creative development which was shown as a work in progress as part of the Come Out Festival in March 1999. This version was performed at the Circidz Church Hall in Brompton, Adelaide and was a deliberately small scale piece which incorporated direct involvement and interaction with the audience.

The Flight 1998

The project The Flight was about independence and, for the company was a coming of age. Sally Chance and Caroline Daish invited Liam Steel from the British dance company DV8 to collaborate in order to create a big, ambitious work which would match the ambition and maturity of the dancers. Liam asked each dancer to look inside themselves and offer the process of devising the sweet, the assertive and the ugly. Liam was the first guest director to work with Restless. Choreography by the members of the Company Directed by Liam Steel, Sally Chance and Caroline Daish Set and Costume Design   Gael...

Sex Juggling 1997

Sex Juggling highlighted the gender issues within the company. The process of Sex Juggling was an experiment to discover what would happen if the men and the women of Restless were invited to devise and create within their own gender groups and then recombine to present a full length piece of dance theatre. Director  Sally Chance Design  Gaelle Mellis Sex Juggling was performed in the Junction Hall in Adelaide in July 25th – August 2nd 1997. In September/October 1997, Sex Juggling toured to schools in Whyalla, Port Augusta, Roxby Downs and Coober Pedy and to the National Festiva...

Gigibori 1995

Gigibori was devised for the Adelaide Festival Centre Trust’s Brave New Works season and performed at the Space Theatre. Gigibori is an East Papuan word referring to the spiritual quality in a work of art. In this culture a work can only be raised to the status of art if it has this quality and this seemed to link to the energy generated by the Restless dancers with a disability whenever they are in their dancing space. Gigibori took the dancers with and without a disability – and their audiences – on a classic young people’s journey, travelling through rebellion and chaos to return...

Talking Down 1995

Talking Down was the company’s first explicit exploration of the concept of cultures of disability, inspired by the thoughts of dancer Melanie Creaser. At the time Melanie was exploring ideas about having a culture of Down Syndrome through her language and her personal expression using dance. Talking Down built a gestural language among each of the dancers, weaving this into a series of images expressing the energy and the imagination of the company members.
