Bold steps for dance
MARY BRENNAN for The Herald (Glasgow) describes the unique role of the Darrell Award in offering emerging choreographers a chance to create new work from scratch.

Scottish Dance Theatre received a golden thumbs-up from the Scottish Arts Council last month. The company's grant was increased by 78%, taking its funding to £500,000 in a single leap. That news was further bolstered by the offer of three-year funding. SDT's artistic director Janet Smith was, of course, thrilled. "We see the award as real recognition of the company's achievements and talents," said Smith - typically channelling the credit away from herself and on to the team she works with.

Typically, too, she looked out and beyond her own group, to a pattern of awards that saw Alan Greig's X Factor benefit from a 66% increase (taking their funding to £100,000) and the consolidation of project funding into the core budget of Nikki Milican's New Moves International.

Last night's, first night
By KELLY APTER for The Scotsman

SET up in 1998 to nurture and encourage young dancemakers, the Peter Darrell Choreographic Award has produced some interesting results - and this year is no exception.

Unlike other award schemes, which lavish trinkets on their recipients, this one puts its money where its mouth is, allowing the winners to create a new work with a professional company.

The Scottish Dance Theatre was the empty vessel on this occasion, waiting to be filled by the judges’ favourites: Victor Quijada and Beth Cassani. And what a heady brew they produced. A former Los Angeles hip-hopper turned ballet dancer, Quijada has gone back to his roots for the psychoanalytical work Self Observation Without Judgment.
