from the artistic director
Hello again!

We usually leave a slightly longer period between editions of the Restless Wrap but we would like to clarify the times for our DreamBIG workshops Come Dance With Me Again. The workshops on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May are at 11:00am and 1pm. Do come along to these free workshops.

We are delighted to be hosting Touch & Go at Restless during the DreamBIG Festival. Touch & Go is a performance designed for children aged from 24 to 36 months. It has been created by Restless Dance Theatre founder Sally Chance and it is wonderful to be hosting her work in our Studio.

And the showing of To Look Away as part of the Adelaide viewing of the 24 Frames Per Second  exhibition, is accompanied by three days of genre-bending dance programs called: Physical Forces. We have a free give away of a double pass to one of the workshops in Physical Forces. First in best dressed!

Touch & Go
Adelaide Premiere
Calling all two year old children and their adults!
Touch & Go is a dancing game of cause and effect, dedicated to the mighty two-year old. Touch & Go entices, dares and entertains children in a playful environment.
Two year olds are invited to enter a playful world of shapes and pathways, stepping stones and lines, with two friendly dancers and a live guitarist.
The children become part of the performance themselves or observe from a safe distance, touching and going just as they need to.
Please note, BASS ticket sales for each performance will close 9am the morning of the show, with tickets then available at the venue.
This event is intended for children aged from 24 to 36 months. Children outside this age range are not suited to some elements of the events.
