Project #1 will be showcased in front of a public audience and a panel of international judges which includes Ed Wubbe, Artistic Director of Scapino Ballet, Rotterdam. Kenneth is one of sixteen nominees which include James Wilton - a British free lance choreographer who was the winner of Sadler’s Wells Global Dance Contest in 2010 – and Jorge Garcia Perez who is currently dancing with Basel Ballet.

Project #1 was originally created for a Northern Ballet Choreographic Workshop performance in the summer of 2011 and was then extended to form part of Perpetual Motion which was performed to overwhelmingly positive reviews at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre in Leeds earlier this year. You will have the chance to see Kenneth perform in Leeds before the competition in I Got Rhythm which premieres at Leeds Grand Theatre on the 23 May.
