9 November — 17 November, Powerhouse Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse

A creative intersection of art forms.

Bespoke challenges assumptions about what dance is, what dancers can do, and how dance is experienced.
It is a place where artists inspire each other to create groundbreaking, thought-provoking and relevant new works.

In 2018, we collaborate with artists from Expressions Dance Company; independent contemporary dance maker, Gabrielle Nankivell; and rising talent from QB’s own ranks, Jack Lister. Bespoke will begin outside the theatre with visual artists from film, photography and sculpture creating a sensory dance experience.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

Bespoke 2017 Rational/Animal

Society as we know it, is made up of constraints, of boundaries and margins that guide our actions, our interactions and to some extent, our behaviours and thoughts.

Bespoke 2017 Chameleon

Inspired by the discipline and rigour of the ballet dancers, Chameleon explores adaptation, osmosis, uniformity and metamorphosis.
