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 and photography 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.
