From 20th of November to 1st of December 2013, Bangarra Dance Theatre presents Dance Clan 3, a new production commissioned by Artistic Director Stephen Page. For the first time, Bangarra has assembled an all-women choreographic team with four of the company's senior female dancers each creating a new work. The resulting program of diverse styles and ideas will be presented as part of the inaugural festival, Corroboree Sydney.
Showcasing fresh voices and stories from the Bangarra family, Dance Clan 3 invites audiences into the heart and soul of Bangarra to experience our inspirational contemporary indigenous culture. Bangarra artists Deborah Brown, Yolande Brown, Tara Gower and Jasmin Sheppard will explore Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander story lines in pieces that will be performed by the entire Bangarra ensemble of 14 dancers.
These raw, exciting performances will be presented in Bangarra's studio theatre on Pier 4 in Walsh Bay. This is a rare opportunity to have an intimate theatrical experience in the company's creative home and with limited capacity and a
short season, tickets are bound to sell out quickly.
The creative team for this production will feature composer David Page, designer Jacob Nash, Jennifer Irwin as costume designer and Matt Cox on lighting.
A highlight of Corroboree Sydney, Dance Clan 3 is a rare opportunity for Sydney audiences to have a second Bangarra experience in the one year, following the recent acclaimed season of Blak at the Sydney Opera House in June. Bringing
together nine of Sydney's leading cultural organisations under the one banner for the first time, Corroboree Sydney is set to deliver a showcase of the best visual and performing arts from around the nation, sharing the stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. The inaugural festival will be held over 11 days, from 14 to 24 November 2013.
