The Place presents DONUTS by Extended Play

21 Oct 2021 to 22 Oct 2021


70 minutes

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.
