Posted on June 3, 2013

jasminvardimonbybenharriesChoreographer Jasmin Vardimon has been awareded the 2013 International Theatre Institute (ITI) award for excellence in international dance. Presented by Neville Shulman, director of the British Centre, the award recognises Vardimon’s choreographic work in recent years.

 

Vardimon will be returning to performance in the forthcoming restaging of her 2006 work Justitia, which returns to London’s Peacock Theatre from September 17 to 22. Danced on a large, revolving set, the work unravels multiple truths behind a crime story.

 

Vardimon is also the first guest artistic director of the new National Youth Dance Company (NYDC). The young company will make its debut at London’s Sadler’s Wells on June 8, dancing a new work created by Vardimon, before touring to Kent, Leeds, Salford Quays and Bristol.
