Discover how this unique collaboration came to be

#Every step an inspiring story

Queensland Ballet Academy presents Summer Soirée - a sophisticated evening of dance, art and music in collaboration with Philip Bacon Galleries and internationally-acclaimed Brisbane artist, Michael Zavros.

Artistically stimulating and exclusively chic, this inaugural one-night-only event, will be a stunning fusion of Zavros’ works with original neo-classical and contemporary choreography by Natalie Weir and Paul Boyd, performed by Queensland Ballet Academy dancers to music by Camerata, Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra. 

Summer Soirée will be a highlight of the Queensland Ballet Academy each year thanks to our ongoing creative partnership with Philip Bacon Galleries. This unique partnership will unveil a new collaboration with a different visual artist each year, selected to evoke and inspire the creation of new works, performed by our Academy’s young dancers.  

An extraordinary showcase of Australian art, Australian choreographers and Australia’s emerging dance talent, Summer Soirée promises a night of glamour and art, as Queensland Ballet Academy once again breaks the boundaries of expectation to offer a classy, uniquely Australian event.
