On the subject of Ashley Page, I received this Press Statement dated 8th November 2010 from Loesje Sanders:

Further to the recent announcement by Scottish Ballet that Ashley Page is to “step down”, he wishes to make clear the circumstances in which he will be leaving the Company in August 2012, when his current contract comes to an end.

He will leave with great sadness and regret, and had hoped that the Board would have wished to offer him a further five year period as Artistic Director, given the undoubted successes and acclaim the Company has enjoyed during his period as Artistic Director.

Ashley Page had plans in place to bring in new creative artists to work with the Company, as well as further developing Scottish Ballet’s partnership with Choreographers with whom it has already established successful relationships. These new projects, along with new work by Ashley, would have continued to develop the Company’s ethos and artistic identity, building on Ashley’s original artistic vision.

However, the Board decided to offer him a single year extension only to his current contract. Under the circumstances, and on hearing of the wish of the Board to seek alternative creative approaches and influences for the Company to his own, he decided it would serve no good purpose to accept this short term offer.

This position is of great disappointment to my client, but one in which he accepts he has no part to play.
