Jana Burkiewiczová, a graduate of the Prague Academy of Performing Arts, choreographer, director, and founder of the Burkicom ensemble, has choreographed numerous works for leading Czech theatre companies, including the National Theatre Opera in Prague. She has also choreographed a number of productions for Czech Television as well as major social events (e.g. Designblok Prague, Moravian Gallery in Brno, Czech Grand Design Awards). Since 2015, she has desiccated her time mainly to her own projects, both in her Burkicom production and for other productions (e.g., Losers Cirque Company, and DOT504). Although the initial means of her work are based on the connection between contemporary dance, physical theatre, and new circus, she often freely crosses their boundaries in the direction of the original dramatic form. Her unique style, enhanced by her collaboration with leading Czech designers, brings a distinctive contemporary theatre discussing current sociological issues, characterized by specific movement techniques and visual concepts.

For her choreography of Walls & Handbags for the new circus company Losers Cirque Company, she won Divadelní noviny Award in the dance and movement theatre category in the 2014/2015 season.

The production Island! received a nomination for the Divadelní noviny Award, a nomination for the Thalia Award and was among the five best productions of 2021 at the 2021 Theatre Critics Awards.
