Burkicom is a leading Czech contemporary physical theatre company founded in 2015 by choreographer Jana Burkiewiczová. Her unique style, enhanced by collaborations with leading Czech designers, brings distinctive contemporary theatre dealing with current sociological issues, dominated by specific movement techniques and artistic concepts. “We dance to say more than just words. We speak to overcome the shadow of a gesture. The image is as important to us as the message. Dance is a flight of the bird of paradise, a cry and an exchange of ideas. By means of theatre, we try to understand the society we live in.” Dancers, actors, musicians, visual artists, performers.
Burkicom’s home stage is the industrial space La Fabrika in Prague’s Holešovice, but the company’s productions have also been appreciated by audiences at a number of theatre and dance festivals, from Brno’s Svět divadla and South Korea’s PAMS Seoul, to Indonesian SIPA, German Fringe Recklinghausen and the Dutch ARFF Amsterdam.
Burkicom’s production The Island! was among those nominated for the Theatre of the Year at the 2021 Theatre Critics Awards (formerly the Alfred Radok Awards).
