How To Build A Universe – Extended Play

24 February @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£11.00 – £18.00

How To Build A Universe is the latest production from choreographer Jamaal Burkmar.

Formed of two parts, How To Build A Universe showcases Extended Play’s creative process: visually striking, mesmerising dance to intoxicating music, and improvisation with guest participants.

Through a collision of music and movement, audiences are invited to uncover the elemental joy at the heart of Extended Play’s practice.

Five people find themselves in a blank void between worlds. Led by a mysterious voice, they set out on an adventure to create a new universe, one shape at a time.

As they dance their way through a cosmic orientation, echoes of past creations rise and fall.

The real magic happens when they must welcome new cast members from London who arrive without a map or instructions. Together, they improvise, weaving a tapestry of movement and emotion to bring a new universe to life, on a journey where dance, art, and spontaneity come together to create something unique.

How To Build A Universe is co-produced by The Place. Co-commissioned by The Place and Certain Blacks. Supported using public funding from Arts Council England. Part of Certain Blacks, Soul on Ice festival.

Running Time: 1 hour (with no interval)
