New role for Liam Scarlett
25-year old dancer and choreographer Liam Scarlett has been appointed the Royal Ballet's first artist in residence. Scarlett will stop dancing with the company and concentrated on choreography. His first work for the Covent Garden main stage, Asphodel Meadows, won an Olivier Award in 2010. He choreographed a pas-de-deux for the recent Our Extraordinary World gala at Covent Garden and his ballet, Viscera, recently received its UK premiere at Covent Garden as part of a triple bill with ballets by Wayne McGregor and Christopher Wheeldon.
