The Georgian ballet dancer Giorgi Potskhishvili, a soloist with Dutch National Ballet, is the winner of the Alexandra Radius Prize 2023. The prize was presented to Potskhishvili in person by Alexandra Radius, on Saturday evening, 16 September 2023, during the premiere of the opening programme of the season, Four Temperaments at Dutch National Opera & Ballet.

Alexandra Radius Prize 2023 The Alexandra Radius Prize is an initiative of the Friends of Dutch National Ballet foundation and is presented annually to the dancer of Dutch National Ballet who has distinguished themselves most remarkably in the past dance season. The prize comprises a sum of €4000 and an artwork by Humphrey Bennet. This year, the Alexandra Radius Prize was awarded for the 34th time.

The jury on Potskhishvili: "(...) We voted unanimously for the Georgian dancer Giorgi Potskhishvili, who joined the Junior Company in 2020, and now, just three years later, is a soloist with Dutch National Ballet. (…) In his second season, he already danced his first leading role in a big classical production, adding exciting lustre to Rachel Beaujean’s wonderful new production of Raymonda in the role of Sheikh Abd- al-Rahman, alongside principal dancer Anna Tsygankova."
