Javier De Frutos
for Los Picadores And Paseillo

Set to Igor Stravinskyís Les Noces, De Frutosí Los Picadores was co-commissioned by the Biennale Festival in Venice. The work draws upon the musicís fiery essence translating it into a powerful physical fight between men and women. In the UK Los Picadores was presented in a programme that also included Paseillo, set to religious music by Mozart, which marked, with equal success, De Frutosí first term as Artistic Director of Phoenix Dance Company.

Michael Keegan-Dolan
for The Bull

Founder and Director of Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre, choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan is acknowledged to be the greatest choreographer to have emerged from Ireland since Ninette de Valois. His astonishing physical theatre pieces in collaboration with the Dublin Theatre Festival and The Barbican have included an Olivier-nominated Giselle, The Flowerbed and, most recently, The Bull. His work is challenging, intelligent, shot through with scatological humour and firmly in the narrative tradition.

Mark Morris
for Mozart Dances

Mozart Dances has been widely acclaimed and considered comparable with Morrisís other masterpiece, LíAllegro il Penseroso ed il Moderato. It is a full-length work which uses two Mozart piano concertos and a piano sonata for its setting and in creating this work, Morris has interpreted the music with depth and lightness of touch. Thanks to such successful creations as this one, Morris remains one of the most popular and in demand dance makers worldwide.
