Zizanie

Zizanie was a hit at the Adelaide Festival! Restless premieried Zizanie directed by Meryl Tankard in the Space Theatre to critical acclaim: "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.

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.

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...
