Gormley wins Olivier award.

ARTIST Antony Gormley, creator of the Another Place statues on Crosby beach, picked up an Olivier award in London last night.

The sculptor won the Outstanding Achievement in Dance award for his work on the set design of Babel.

The same show also won the award for Best New Dance Production at the ceremony at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

A revival of Terence Rattigan's After the Dance picked up the first prize at this year's awards.

Presenting the award for Best Revival, Sir Patrick Stewart admitted the idea had been something of "a dirty word" in the past but said the nominated plays represented the "extraordinary diversity of London theatre".

After the Dance, which played at the National Theatre on London's South-Bank, scooped the award, beating three other nominees including King Lear and Arthur Miller's All My Sons.

The awards for Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design went to Neil Austin for the White Guard at the National Theatre and Adam Cork for King Lear at the Donmar Warehouse respectively.

Best Actress in a Supporting Role went to Michelle Terry for Tribes.

Adrian Scarborough won the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his part in After the Dance.

There was another prize for After the Dance when veteran of stage and screen Joss Ackland presented the award for Best Actress to Nancy Carroll. The Best Actor award went to Roger Allam for his role as Falstaff in Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 at Shakespeare's Globe.
