Desh by Akram Khan won Best New Dance Production. I would love the opportunity to draw Akram Khan Company while they are rehearsing. In 2010 I watched Confluence, a collaboration between Akram Khan and musician Nitin Sawhney and also Gnosis, both were fabulous.
Metamorphosis, Arthur Pita’s wonderful interpretation of Franz Kafkas’s dark novella of a traveling salesman who wakes one morning to find himself transformed into a giant insect, was nominated but didn’t win. I drew this dance during the rehearsals, truly it is tragic and beautiful.
Outstanding Achievement in Dance was won by Edward Watson, for his performance in The Metamorphosis. (see above).
