Helpmann Nomination! Yay!!!
We are delighted to announce that the Restless production, Intimate Space has been nominated for a prestigious Helpmann Award in the Best Dance Production category. The production is one of only four works chosen from around Australia in the last year! Intimate Space was an incredibly ambitious project which saw 60 performances by 21 artists performing throughout the iconic Hilton Adelaide. A huge thank you to the wonderful creatives, beautiful dancers and the amazing team behind the scenes who made everything magically happen. Thanks also to Rachel Healy and Neal Armfield for programming Restless in their fabulous 2017 Adelaide Festival and to the Hilton Adelaide for being so accommodating, supportive and generally amazing.
Congratulations to all the nominees especially the fantastic list of South Australian companies which included the Adelaide Festival, State Theatre Company of South Australia, Gravity and Other Myths, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Womadelaide, Windmill Theatre, Patch Theatre Company and Brink Productions. It is fantastic to see the amazing work being developed and presented in South Australia being acknowledged on a national level.
