    Jarek Camerek



    Jarek Cemerek is presently one of the most successful Czech choreographers and dancers; his achievements are many not only in the Czech Republic but also abroad. In 2011 at London Sadler's Wells theatre he presented a premiere of a piece called Void, a choreography hand- tailored for the male dance company Balletboyz and one that is a thematic sequel to Void Amongst Humans. The opportunity to create at Sadler's Wells was a result of Jarek being chosen among 180 choreographers participating at an audition. Another of his achievements is that he was invited to teach dance and to choreograph at the renowned Juilliard School in New York. In 2011 he was awarded on Czech Dance Platform for the Dance Piece of the Year and the Dancer of the Year.

    He studied dance at the Conservatory in Ostrava, choreography and dance pedagogy at The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (B.A. and M.A), short term study of choreography at The Theatre Academy in Helsinki. Artistic career began as a dancer at The National Theatre in Ostrava, after he moved to Prague and danced with Laterna Magica and the State Opera. Then he danced in The Bratislava Dance Theatre, Tanztheaterwien (Vienna), Thor (Brusel), Willy Dorner (Vienna), The Dance Theatre of Ireland, Stadttheater Bern (Switzerland) and at The Royal Opera House (London). In 2009 he co-founded Albamora contemporary dance company in Denmark. As a teacher he worked in many dance companies and dance festivals, at The Juilliard School in New York, Huntington Beach High School in California, Sadler's Wells theatre in London, The Palucca Schule in Dresden (Germany), The Theatre Academy in Helsinki (Finland), Stadttheater Bern (Switzerland), The Royal Ballet School in Holstebro (Denmark), cie.
