Restless Dance Theatre

Restless Dance Theatre - kicking high in 2019


Restless Dance is one of a handful of Australian companies which defy pigeon-holing. The work they do with performers of differing physical and intellectual abilities is useful and heart-warming: but the point is that the work itself is exceptionally beautiful and highly skilled, often funny, and always moving - Robyn Archer (Patron)

Restless Dance Theatre creates high quality real, raw and uninhibited dance theatre.

It is Australia’s leading dance theatre company working with young people with and without disability to collaboratively create outstanding inclusive dance theatre informed by disability.

The company presents unexpectedly real dance theatre works in multiple mediums to diverse audiences and runs an extensive high quality workshop program.

Restless has developed a way of working where participants are given a series of creative challenges and asked to respond in movement. Dance sequences are then built up from their responses. This produces unique, distinctive and very striking dance through a process that nurtures the creative voices of the performers, artists and participants.

Founded in 1991, the multi-award winning company has mounted 34 major productions to widespread critical acclaim and conducted 27 major community workshop programs. The company has also produced highly acclaimed film works.
