Beau Dean Riley Smith and Daniel Riley will perform their dance story Miyagan, which means ‘our family’, and will depict the artists’ cultural heritage from Wiradjuri country in New South Wales.
Resident designer Jacob Nash will design inspiring sets for each performance on the triple bill. Costumes will be managed by Jennifer Irwin and lighting will be maintained by Matt Cox.
