Total Theatre Awards

The Total Theatre Awards have been presented for Edinburgh Festival 2015, with seven gongs presented in total over five categories, including the new previously reported dance-focused award. Plus, in addition to that little lot, a Significant Contribution Award was presented to the theatre company Forced Entertainment.

Speaking about this year’s winners, Total Theatre Awards Producers Jo Crowley and Becki Haines told reporters: “This year’s awards celebrate some exceptional artist-led and independent work. The awarded artists have created work that demonstrates the power of theatre and live performance to communicate, entertain and inspire audiences – cutting across boundaries of background, nationality and language. Much of which has been made in challenging circumstances, with limited resource and could easily slip through the gaps, and we are therefore delighted that Total Theatre is recognising, championing and celebrating this work”.
