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…
DONUTS follows one night, separated over several years, in the life of a group of friends: how music connects them, feeds their friendship and their need to dance until it becomes almost like a collective state of trance. It’s a celebration of all the times a night
in is so much better than a night out.
Choreographed by Jamaal Burkmar, DONUTS explores the dynamic way real friendship evolves over time, how the friendships in classic sitcoms can make you feel more like an outsider, and the way music and dance brings people together. Bursting with precision and soul, DONUTS is a hypnotic and playful groove along to jazz and funk.
DONUTS is co-produced by The Place, co-commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre and DanceXchange.
