Sydney Festival – Guttered

18 - 22 January

Head down to the bowling alley for an inspiring, involving and highly original all-ages dance work. Adelaide’s award-winning company Restless Dance Theatre brings its movement magic straight to the heart of a Sydney games arcade for a family day out with a difference.

Performed across the lanes and around the audience, Guttered is both captivating and playful as it explores the power of making one’s own mistakes, and the ways people living with disability are often over-protected. You’re right amongst the choreography as glowing bowling bags breathe stories in your ears and bodies break free and hurl themselves down the lanes in this evocative expression of life with the gutter guards down.

Directed by Michelle Ryan, artistic director of Restless Dance Theatre and recipient of the 2020 Australia Council Dance Award, Guttered boasts a dynamic score, magical lighting and creative use of space. We’re pretty sure Kicks Tenpin and Arcade has never hosted anything quite like it.

Bring the kids and make a day of it by enjoying a game or two after the show. As the only patrons allowed in the arcade on performance days, Guttered audience members will have the run of the place!
