Description - Clan by Stephen Page

2014 marks Bangarra Dance Theatre's twenty-fifth year. Clan honours this milestone and those people who have inspired Bangarra over the years. By having its feet in both worlds of old and modern, Bangarra creates contemporary theatrical experiences that are influenced by timeless stories and customs. The land shapes the people, the people shape the language, the language shapes the songs, and the songs then determine the dance - and the spirit flows through it all. This is the Bangarra Dance Theatre.Dancers communicate so profoundly with the mere flex of a foot or hand, a shift of focus, the roll of a head, the transfer of weight within their body. As the dancers move in and out of the space and light there is a momentum and energy, even with the smallest of steps. Greg Barrett and Stephen Page in a unique collaboration have beautifully and skilfully given shape to, and recorded, these magical, ephemeral moments. Clan's intimate and dramatic collection of photographs capture the personal, the professional and the sacred moments of artistic expression.
