from the artistic director
We are delighted to announce that Restless has been shortlisted for two Ruby Awards!
Our acclaimed production of Intimate Space which was such a hit of the 2017 Adelaide Festival, is shortlisted as Best Work and as Arts Innovation and Enterprise.
We are up against some stiff competition in both categories but it is wonderful to have this recognition of the quality of our work. All the dancers and everyone involved with Intimate Space can be justly proud that their work is seen by their peers as being on a par with the best that South Australia has to offer.
And you can vote for Intimate Space too! Voting for the People’s Choice Ruby Award is live online now. Please do go to the Ruby Awards website and vote for Intimate Space now!
An excerpt from Intimate Space will also be Showcased at the Australian Performing Ats Market (APAM) in Brisbane in February. This will be a brilliant opportunity to present the work to other festivals who might be interested in this innovative and imaginative site specific work.
Restless has also had recent success with two funding opportunities:
1/. Creative Partnerships Australia through their Plus1 program have agreed to match donations made towards the costs of making Zizanie, Meryl Tankard’s new work for Restless, and general touring costs.
2/. Arts South Australia are supporting the company to continue its highly successful association with the SA School for Vision Impaired in 2018.
For more details about both of these please see below.
Thank you so much.
