This week BroadwayWorld UK announced the shortlist for its 2019 industry awards, which celebrate the best long-running West End productions and best new productions from around the country.

As part of the line-up, movement director Shelley Maxwell has been nominated for Best Choreography of a New Production of a Play or Musical for her work on Equus at Theatre Royal Stratford East with English Touring Theatre. Shelley completed her Masters in Choreographer at Trinity Laban in 2007. Read The Stage’s recent interview with Shelley for insight into the production.

Sir Matthew Bourne has been nominated for Outstanding Achievement in a New Dance Production for his new work Romeo & Juliet. Current undergraduate dance students Kayleigh Oborka-Letman and Ashton Hall performed in the production this August at Sadler’s Wells and Theatre Royal, Newcastle respectively.

Four Quartets by celebrated New York-based choreographer Pam Tanowitz has also gained a nomination for Outstanding Achievement in a New Dance Production.
