“My time spent with Restless Dance Theatre both the with the company and the emerging artists was a next level experience. The welcoming, inclusive, and thoughtful environment created by everyone in the space was admirable as well as a beautiful space to create in. It was truly inspiring to work with the artists at Restless who completely honour and respect their practice holistically. Participating in a Secondment at Restless really opened my eyes on how dance can be transformative with the inclusion of all creative minds and bodies both alike and different.” – Bonnie Traeger
