Win or lose, it's just a game. Right?
When did you last go bowling?
Maybe you're 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
Adelaide’s unique, multi award-winning company Restless Dance Theatre once more deliver, as their manifesto delightfully puts it, “unexpectedly real dance theatre that is collaboratively devised, inclusive and informed by disability”, this time in a ten-pin bowling alley. Coupled with the sights and sounds of being in an actual bowling alley, the audience melts into the narrative, some even enlisted to have a bowl themselves or invited to listen closely to an illuminated bowling bag.
