Rubeun Yorkshire

Rubeun Yorkshire is a Noongar, Yamatji and Wangktha man. A visual artist, dancer, stage combat choreographer, and actor, Rubeun is well known for his performance as Banquo in the award-winning production of Hecate – a re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth in the endangered Noongar language of south-western Australia. Rubeun was a key collaborator on Boomerang and Spear’s Noongar Wonderland presented at the 2022 Perth Festival, co-choreographing a series of dances for a new collection of Noongar-language dance tracks by Maatakitj (Clint Bracknell) with ARIA award-winning Australian music icon Paul Mac.

Since graduating from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) in 2010, Rubeun has been practicing and exploring his cultural connections through performance and visual arts and sharing his knowledge with community and Noongar youth through his mentoring role at Balga high school.

Rubeun has assisted his grandfather Warren Yorkshire on public art commissions and painted several murals around the state using aerosol.

He has completed a range of public artworks for corporate, major festivals and education institutions including a 40 metre mural at Port Hedland High School in collaboration with local Kariyarra/Pilbara artists.

Rubeun’s public art ethos is to consult with local community and create work that is site specific.

Much of Rubeun’s public artwork has been done in collaboration with long time friend and mentor Matthew McVeigh. As a public art team they have been short-listed for and been awarded many public art projects.
