Matthew Bourne's New Adventures: Choreographer Award Showcase 2016
Jamaal Burkmar will premiere a triple bill of new works
Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures Choreographer Award 2016 winner, Jamaal Burkmar, will premiere a triple bill of new works from 21-24 September at the Platform Theatre, Central Saint Martins in London. Jamaal will present three world premieres including Jamaal Burkmar Dance’s 16 Bars, featuring a stellar cast of six professional female dancers, Storm by Shoreditch Youth Dance and The Calm by the newly formed Batch Company. This year’s NACA involves a new, exciting collaboration and partnership between Central Saint Martins, New Adventures and Re:Bourne. During an intensive research and development period at CSM, Jamaal worked alongside current CSM students and graduates who then had the opportunity to pitch their designs based around Jamaal’s movement ideas. Curated by New Adventures and Re:Bourne Resident Artist, Lee Smikle and Platform Theatre Producer, Ged Matthews, 16 designers took part in the Design Incubator Lab. CSM graduate Robin Soutar was the successful designer chosen by Jamaal as the NACA Showcase 2016 designer. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
“An exceptional new voice.”
