Glittering Prizes, Asphodel Meadows
Liam Scarlett nominated for a South Bank Award
Congratulations and the best of luck to Royal Ballet dancer and choreographer Liam Scarlett, whose ballet Asphodel Meadows has been nominated for a South Bank Award. The winners will be announced at London’s Dorchester Hotel on 25 January 2011.
Alas, The South Bank Show, the landmark UK arts programme, is no longer shown on terrestrial TV, but the awards continue and have found a new home on Sky Arts, which will broadcast the awards live.
There are prizes for many categories, including visual art, theatre, film and music.
The dance short list is:
• Akram Khan’s Gnosis, Sadler’s Wells
• Asphodel Meadows, Royal Ballet, Liam Scarlett
• Hofesch Shechter’s Political Mother, Sadlers Wells
Asphodel Meadows was presented with generous philanthropic support from Simon and Virginia Robertson, Linda and Philip Harley and the Estate of Dr John Hayes.
