A bit about Omari ‘Motion’ Carter:
Omari is a screendance practitioner, lecturer and body percussionist based in London and, for the past decade, has been choreographing, teaching, and performing for music videos, film, television, and theatre. A first-class BA (Hons) degree in Performing Arts at London Metropolitan University led Omari to perform for 7 years in the West End and international touring productions of ‘Stomp!’. During this time, Omari choreographed, directed, performed, and produced a varied reel of dance-film work with Screendance production company, The Motion Dance Collective, which he founded in 2011.
As a director, videographer, and editor, Omari has created digital-dance and documentary content for Breakin’ Convention Hip Hop Theatre Festival (UK), Parkinson’s UK, Dance Woking, DanceXchange, South East Dance, Akademi (UK), Calmer UK, National Centre for Circus Arts, Jason Mabana Dance, Pagrav Dance Company, and Mouvement Perpétuel (Canada).
As an independent choreographer and dancer, Omari has created works for Google, Britain’s Got Talent, Weetabix, Stanton Warriors, Greenpeace UK, Diabetes UK, and ADAD (Association of Dance from the African Diaspora).
A graduate from the world’s first master’s degree in Screendance at London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS), Omari went on to become associate lecturer in Screendance at the University of East London, University of Lincoln, and LCDS. Most recently Omari was co-curator of Akademi Dance-Film Festival 2021, Digital Creative for Pavilion Dance South West, on the event programming team for San Souci Festival of Dance Cinema (USA), and features twice in Vol. 12 of The International Journal of Screendance which was released earlier this year.
