Jamaal and Extended Play re-evaluate their practice with a focus on creating new works that are accessible for new audiences. Jamaal was selected to be a fellow by the Leeds Dance Partnership under Phoenix Dance Theatre’s support and tutelage. Also this year Jamaal has been commissioned by Tom Dale Dance Company, Mobius Dance. Jamaal has also been able to work on commercial projects that have garnered millions of views online whilst also creating new work in different spaces with a focus on accessible music.
