from the artistic director
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who donated to our Keep Restless Dancing fundraising campaign. Our goal was to raise $50,000 to trigger $50,000 in matched funds from Creative Partnerships Australia.

Well, we smashed it! We raised a whopping $136,524! So with the matched funding that makes $186,524.
It is heart-warming and humbling to have such an amazing demonstration of how much our company means to so many people.

We have been hard at work developing our next new work Exposed which will open in the Space Theatre in Adelaide Festival Theatre Centre next year.
Exposed is being supported by the Federal Government’s RISE fund.

There are some great opportunities coming up to see our work. we would love to see you there.

Zest for Life
Artist Catherine Fitz-Gerald supports Restless

Join us this Sunday as local artist and philanthropist, Catherine Fitz-Gerald throws open her Toorak Gardens studio to launch the inaugural Restless limited edition art series.  Zest for Life is a painting holding many layers of complexity reminding us to maintain a Zest for Life during trying times.

“The dancer legs of the bowl are shod in red shoes, referencing the famous story and film. Three legs celebrate inclusivity. Lemons for ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’ and the curling peel ending under the toe of the red shoe emphasises zest for life, which is evident every time these wonderful dancers perform” Catherine Fitz-Gerald.

When you purchase your limited edition print, proceeds raised go the Restless Dancers to support their on-going training program.
