WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
As a performer Cousins toured with Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake before winning the inaugural New Adventures Choreographer Award in 2011. As a result he presented his first full evening of work at Sadler's Wells in 2012. Cousins has created work on Scottish Ballet, Edge and most recently The National Ballet of Chile.
Rising star of the British dance scene James Cousins' latest work is inspired by one of Shakespeare's most headstrong and independent heroines. Set in a modern city - conservative by day, wonderland by night- the curious, courageous heroine Rosalind embarks on a journey of self-discovery, fuelled by love and oppression. Shakespeare's Rosalind is a clever, funny wordsmith. In this unique production, created in collaboration with Korean dancers and artists, Cousins takes her passion and eloquence beyond words.
