Total Theatre Awards (TTA) is one of the UK’s most recognised awards that celebrates and supports a wide spectrum of contemporary performing art, both nationally and internationally, during Edinburgh Festival Fringe – the world’s largest open access arts festival. TTA looks at innovative performance work beyond the classical cannon within the fields of devised theatre, live art, visual performance, mime, puppetry, physical theatre, experimental theatre, dance, circus, immersive, outdoor and site specific performance.
TTAs are assessed and judged by two peer panels of artists, critics, producers, presenters, academics, theatre makers and theatre workers from across the UK and international performing arts community. Participation in the peer process is an invaluable professional development opportunity and a chance to build new international networks.
Total Theatre Awards will host the Assessors and Judges in Edinburgh; provide guidance and support, assign peer mentors and international hosts to guide them through the early stage of the process; book tickets for all performances; and arrange meetings with UK artists and organisations to introduce participants to the UK contemporary performance scene.
Please complete the application form and email it to email@example.com by 12 June 2017 inclusive. Late applications will not be considered. Shortlisted applicants may be contacted between 14 – 20 June and asked to pass a British Council language test. Selected participants will be announced on 23 June.

Chris Dercon, a new director of Berlin’s Volksbühne theater, located on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, has made headlines after he tried to force hundreds of activists out of the famous cultural institution, which they took over with the aim of turning it into a collectively run theater. The activists describe their actions as a protest against commercialization of art.
