Seeing Through Darkness – An evocative and uplifting dance performance and immersive lighting installation. A show that makes the heart sing”. InDaily

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.
