Enter Shifting Perspectives, an immersive dance performance suitable for all ages and abilities. This provocative dance and light work allows you to explore a large mirror maze.

Dancers sway around twenty-four reflective plinths all around you, their motions resonating endlessly. You are engulfed in a mind-bending sight as light and sound synchronize.

Renowned spatial artist Matthew Adey (Dark Mofo’s House of Vnholy) has collaborated with Restless Dance Theatre to create a one-of-a-kind environment in which every step unveils a new angle and a new version of yourself.

Shifting Perspectives invites contemplation on the relationship between perception and identity through a participatory experience that is open to anyone. It is more than just a performance.

“The viewer’s mind must swiftly assimilate, piece together, and make sense of the numerous images and fragmented reflections that the eyes are receiving, like a visual jigsaw.” — The Marketer

“With Shifting Perspectives, let Restless Dance Theatre open your eyes to new ways of seeing the world through the lenses of light and dark, shape and movement, perception and reality. Dance performance and installation art are combined in this piece, which is directed by Michelle Ryan, the artistic director.” – Journeyer from Australia

“Our reality was stretched and extended by the amazing mind-bending experience that was Shifting Perspectives. Five Stars – Arts Hub.
