Inspired by classic sitcoms of the 90s & 00s, DONUTS follows a group of friends as their friendship evolves over time. DONUTS is a celebration of how music brings people together, no matter what life throws at them. Bursting with precision and soul, it is a hypnotic and playful ‘groove along’ to jazz and funk.
Drawing on his own relationship with music and its influence on his friendships growing up, choreographer Jamaal Burkmar places music at the heart of his creative process.
DONUTS is the first, highly anticipated, full-length dance piece from the company behind JUKEBOX, the breakthrough Instagram series combining popular music with their distinctive and dynamic style of dance.
DONUTS will also be performed at The Place, London, 5-6 Nov 2021, click HERE for details.
