“Lucas is verging on national living treasure status”
Brian Lucas is a performer, choreographer, director, teacher, writer and arts advocate.
Trained in both dance and theatre, he has a national reputation for creating and performing provocative, powerful and intelligent works that bridge the divide between the two forms.
Brian has a particular interest in issues of gender and sexuality, and on the creation and exploration of images of masculine identity and “maleness” in performance.
In addition to his substantial solo practice, Brian has worked with many well-known performance makers and companies including Chunky Move, Finucane + Smith, DV8 Physical Theatre, La Boite Theatre , Pentimento Productions, Michelle Heaven, KAGE, Chamber Made Opera, Circa, Dance North, Motherboard Productions, Queensland Ballet, Queensland Theatre Company and EDC.
Brian was a recipient of a two year Fellowship from the Dance Board of the Australia Council and is currently the National President of Ausdance.
