Compelling, challenging, and always thought-provoking, Queensland Ballet’s Bespoke returns for a sixth season with a triple bill by leading Australian choreographers Paul Boyd, Natalie Weir, and Remi Wörtmeyer.

This celebration of collaboration and original creativity offers audiences the chance to explore the vibrant world of contemporary dance in an intimate environment at the new Talbot Theatre, inside the recently redeveloped Thomas Dixon Centre.

With a performance career spanning more than 25 years across Europe and Australia, Paul Boyd is an inventive and creative choreographer whose works have been part of the repertoires of Queensland Ballet, The Australian Ballet’s Bodytorque Series, Basel Ballet, Oper der Stadt Bonn, John Neumeier’s Bundesjugendballett in Hamburg, The Royal Ballet School, Sydney City Youth Ballet and have toured to New York, Japan, Berlin, Dubai. He is currently also Head of the Queensland Ballet Academy Program Upper School and Resident Choreographer.

Natalie Weir is known internationally for her highly physical partner work, her organic movement style and her touching insight into humanity. In her 30-plus year career, she has created major new works for world class companies including Queensland Ballet, The Australian Ballet, West Australian Ballet, Australasian Dance Collective (formerly Expressions Dance Company), Houston Ballet, Hong Kong Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. Natalie was appointed resident choreographer of Queensland Ballet by Artistic Director Li Cunxin in 2020.

Remi Wörtmeyer is an award-winning choreographer and former Principal Dancer, most recently with the Dutch National Ballet, whose acclaimed choreographic works have been performed across the world in ballet companies and international galas.

Using music, art, and the artists themselves as inspiration, Bespoke presents a sublime merging of classical technique with emotional depth that will lure you into new dimensions of creativity.
