Shot at Sadler’s Wells in London on Friday 7th September 2012, this video shows an extract from the dance performance ‘Everything and Nothing’ and includes short interviews with the choreographer James Cousins and award founder Matthew Bourne.

Selected from hundreds, James Cousins is the winner of the inaugural New Adventures Choreographer Award (NACA). The award, established by Matthew Bourne (Play Without Words, Sleeping Beauty, Edward Scissorhands), aims to inspire new choreographers and ultimately the creation of vibrant and exciting dance and theatre.

‘Everything and Nothing’ is a dynamic collaboration between James Cousins, lighting designer Lee Curran and set designer Colin Falconer. Through the magnifying glass of the quantum world this breathtaking production was performed to an original score that fuses electronic and classical sound worlds by composer Seymour Milton.

The showcase took place in front of a sold out auditorium and at the end of the video Matthew Bourne discusses the award and when he will next be looking for applicants. For more information see
