Thrilled to introduce Jamaal Burkmar’s session for the first time at NOD. The third quarter is about to start. Apply now!

Where: NOD Nuova Officina della Danza , Via Mantova 34 Torino – Italy

When: June 24 – 28, 2024

Deadline for applications: As long as there is space. The number of participants is limited. First come first serve.

Jamaal’s practice centres around the relationship between music, space and awareness between performers. Through both improvisation and choreography tasks, dancers are pushed to their personal limits to discover new ways of moving and new ways of relating that movement to those different dynamics. There will be a focus on quickly and sometimes instantly composing new material in the moment, focussing on sharpening your instinctual responses as a dancer.

Jamaal Burkmar is an international award-winning choreographer whose first creation was as a second year student at the Northern School for Contemporary Dance (NSCD) where he created a piece entitled Ocean. The piece gained critical acclaim, and was performed around the North until it became the first and only undergraduate commissioned for VERVE, the postgraduate company at NSCD. The success of this piece led to Jamaal being awarded the highly prestigious ‘New Adventures Choreography Award’. He has since been commissioned by and received support from the 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.
