We're thrilled to have nominated for a Special Judges' Award at this year's Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards!

We are nominated 'for facilitating the development of a new generation of theatre artists, giving them the opportunity to test their creativity, break boundaries and experiment, with the guidance of excellent producers, artists and theatremakers'.

Three productions from the 2019 Dublin Fringe Festival were nominated:

  • The Examination, by Brokentalkers, nominated for Best Production, and Denis Clohessy nominated for Best Soundscape
  • Losing Your Body, by Rachel Ní Bhraonáin - nominated for Best Movement Direction
  • A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings - Andrew Clancy for nominated for Best Set Design, and Sarah Jane Shiels for Best Lighting Design.

Congrats to all the nominees!

This year’s special tribute award will be presented to Macnas for introducing the 'European tradition of street theatre to Ireland, awakening the country's spirit of carnival and acting as a standard-bearer for community outreach and inclusivity in the arts for more than 30 years.'

We look forward to a night of celebrating Irish Theatre at the National Concert Hall, April 5th.
