Private View

Restless Dance Theatre

Private View invites audiences into a world of secret desires and dreams, exploring taboo subjects of love and sex through diverse personal experiences.

A voyeuristic new work from Restless Dance Theatre, Private View was created by award-winning director and choreographer Michelle Ryan and the Restless dancers with composer and singer Carla Lippis.

Audiences catch fleeting glimpses of the dancers, seemingly unaware that they are being observed, as they unleash their innermost thoughts with unfiltered honesty. Raw emotion is evident in every movement, revealing dancers lost in their own private worlds.

Haunting melodies from Carla Lippis are deeply intertwined within the work and serve as the heartbeat of each scene, underscoring the dancers’ stories and intensifying their emotional resonance.

Private View is an intimate exploration of unspoken stories and secret longing from Australia’s leading creator of dance theatre by dancers with and without disability.
