"The story drives a sense of euphoria for all the forms of the mindset. One form informs another, and the night begins." - Ryan Pearson, Dance Clan choreographer

First time choreographer, Ryan Pearson is a Biripi, Worimi, Minang, Goreng and Balardung man from Taree, NSW. In his Dance Clan piece, Ryan explores his own experience as a young, Indigenous, gay man. He invites the audience to dive into euphoric states expressed by six Bangarra dancers connected by the pulsing heartbeat of an electronic landscape.
