The Metamorphosis wins South Bank Sky Arts Award
Edward Watson acclaimed for an 'incredible physical performance'.
Arthur Pita and ROH2 have won a South Bank Sky Arts Award in the Dance category for The Metamorphosis.
The work, based on the novella by Franz Kafka, premiered last year and was acclaimed by both critics and audiences, winning Edward Watson an Olivier award for his creation of the role of Gregor Samsa, a salesman who awakes one morning to find he has been transformed into a monstrous insect.
Other winners at this year’s South Bank Sky Arts Awards include the Royal Shakespeare Company for Matilda in the theatre category, Grayson Perry for his Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman at the British Museum in the visual art category, and film We Need to Talk About Kevin.
The Metamorphosis returns to the Linbury Studio theatre in 2013. Read an interview with Edward Watson about the work.
The awards ceremony will be broadcast on Tuesday 1 May at 9pm on Sky Arts 1 HD.
