URBAN CLAN is a portrait of the Page brothers - Stephen, David and Russell; how they grew up as urban Aboriginals, developed as individual artists, and came together to form the creative core of the Bangarra Dance Theatre, one of Australia's most exciting and internationally acclaimed contemporary dance companies. The film features extracts from the Bangarra Dance Theatre's production of Fish, which unfolds through rehearsal and performance. It blends cinema verite scenes with beautifully crafted cinematically conceived performance sequences that are staged for the camera. Through the choreographed works we see how Bangarra Dance Theatre has developed a distinctive vocabulary that fuses the essence of their traditional heritage with contemporary experience.
