In 1993 Zaimon began his professional career in the United Kingdom.
Throughout his 7 years in the U.K. he worked with Attik Dance Company, Janet Smith and Dancers and Random Dance Company.
He also co-founded and choreographed several short works for NARC Dance Theatre, funded by Yorkshire and Humberside Arts. Two of these works included “Prying Eye“ – for Resolutions in London, and “LAcon“ – for Bretton Hall College in Leeds.
During his time working for these companies he had the opportunity to participate in intensive workshops and technique classes, lead by Yolanda Snaith, V-tol Dance Company, Small Bones Dance Company, Phoenix Dance Company and many more.
In 2002 he moved to Brisbane to work for Expressions Dance Company, under the artistic direction of Maggi Sietsma.
Whilst there he had the opportunity to work with many different choreographers and artists, some of those included Justin Rutzou, Natalie Weir, Sue Peacock, Cheng Tsung Lung, Gavin Webber and Lisa Wilson.
He has also choreographed works for Expressions “Sketches” seasons (2003 and 2007), Central Queensland University in Rockhampton and Mad Dance House, Brisbane.
In 2008 Zaimon began working as an independent artist and has since worked with such groups as “Elbow Room Collective” initiated by Lisa Wilson and the Queensland Opera. In January 2009, Zaimon returned as a guest artist with Expressions to perform ‘Score’ at the Brooklyn Arts Centre in New York.
In 2009 Zaimon Vilmanis has ventured back into the choreographic world with a new 20 minute work “Forgotten Interlude”.
A commissioned work by Sybella Blencowe, which premiered at the Burnside Ballroom, Adelaide, 5th July 2009.
And he is currently working on a new project for 2010 “A Likely Distrust”.
An exploration of emotional content by integrating video animation of puppets with live movement communicating tension and conflict through abstract but expressive movement.
Zaimon has been teaching contemporary technique extensively for Queensland University of Technology, Mad Dance House, Expressions Dance Company and the Queensland Ballet’s Professional Year.
He hopes to expand his portfolio interstate to share his knowledge and experiences to students and professionals alike.
