Next Occurrence : 06 Mar 2021
In the spirit of their 2017 Festival smash hit Intimate Space and 2020’s beautiful Art Gallery work, Seeing Through Darkness, Adelaide’s unique, multi-award-winning company Restless once more deliver, as their manifesto delightfully puts it, “unexpectedly real dance theatre”, this time in a ten-pin bowling alley.
When did you last go bowling? Are you a little rusty? Perhaps a beginner? How would you feel if gutter guards and ramps were installed in advance to prevent any possibility of your failing to hit the pins? Well intentioned “help” that smothers potential growth is something people with disability encounter all too often. Denial of the dignity of risk is one of many themes playfully explored in this witty and intelligent new work.
You enter, take in the unmistakable vibe, grab your shoes, maybe some chips then go and find your team. Sitting right amongst the action, eavesdropping on intimate exchanges, barracking and getting involved in the game makes for massive, paradigm-shifting fun. Witness fights, love duets, get showered with popcorn, maybe have a shot yourself and face glory or shame. It’s a surprisingly emotional experience with a message to take home.
Guttered reassembles the entire Intimate Space creative team, directed by the recipient of the 2020 Australia Council Dance Award, Restless’ singular Artistic Director Michelle Ryan. Capacity for each show is limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
