Three friends are getting ready for a night out. The music is intoxicating, they start to dance. It’s so good, they might stay a little longer…

Inspired by classic sitcoms of the 90s & 00s, DONUTS follows a group of friends as their friendship evolves over time.

Hypnotic, playful and bursting with precision and soul, this is a work about how music can bring people together, no matter what life throws at them.

Choreographed by Jamaal Burkmar and featuring music from Jameszoo. 

Running time: 60 mins

About the company

DONUTS is the first, highly-anticipated, full-length dance piece from Extended Play, the newly formed dance company from award-winning choreographer Jamaal Burkmar.

Jamaal Burkmar‘s first creation ‘Ocean’ was as a second-year student at Northern School of Contemporary Dance. The piece gained critical acclaim, and was performed around the North until it became the first and to this date, only undergraduate commission for VERVE, the postgraduate company of NSCD.  The success of this piece led to him being awarded the prestigious New Adventures Choreography award from Sir Matthew Bourne in 2015/16. He has since been commissioned by and received support from Dance Hub in Birmingham, Leeds Dance Partnership, Phoenix Dance Theatre, Mobius Dance, and more. Jamaal’s work has a strong relationship to music and sits in many spaces – outdoor, theatrical and online. Jamaal Burkmar is currently a Work Place Artist at The Place.
