The audience voting for the Star of the Theater award continues until the end of August. Anyone can support the nominees on the long list of the most prestigious audience awards. 170 actors and creative teams are among the contenders for the victory, the Teatral magazine writes.
Due to the pandemic, the theater season ended several months earlier, and many premieres never took place. This season, the award presents a special category - “Best Art Response to the Pandemic”. It is meant to support the social and creative activity of actors and directors during self-isolation.
But restrictions aimed at countering the spread of coronavirus infection didn't affect the activity of the audience of Russian theaters abroad. This category includes ten Russian-speaking bands, including the Abkhaz Fazil Iskander State Russian Drama Theater, Paris Children's Theater Studio Aprelik, New York Literary Theater, Chekhov Chisinau Russian Drama Theater, Vilnius Russian Drama Theater. They were joined by Second Reality from Canada, Art Master from Finland, Russian Stage from Germany, Chameleon from Great Britain and Studio 8+ from Austria.
Three candidates with the highest number of votes in each nomination will be included in the short list and will be announced in early autumn. The award ceremony for the winners is to take place in December.
