For the first time in it’s history Canada’s Siminovitch Prize for theatre design has an all female shortlist for its $100.000 prize.
“The short-list includes five remarkably gifted theatre artists whose work gave us such pleasure to delve into and discover,Ã¢â‚¬ said Leonard McHardy, Jury Chair, on behalf of the Jury. “The work also proved an intellectual challenge and expanded our understanding of what designers bring to the aesthetic and the soul of theatre. The experience of theatergoing is enriched by the creativity of each of these five outstanding artists.Ã¢â‚¬
The prize’s jury select nominees who have at least 10 years experience in Canadian theatre and who have contributed to “no fewer than three noteworthy theatre projects in Canada.Ã¢â‚¬
