• Total Theatre Awards 2011 Shortlist – Circus in the Running

    18 August 2011 Artist & Company, Festivals
    Cirk La Putyka

    So the shortlist for the 2011 Total Theatre Awards has been announced. The TT Awards are given out every year to recognise the best physical and visual / experimental work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

    Edinburgh isn't much of a circus festival though if you look back into the TT Awards history you'll see Acrobat winning the audience choice award back in 1997; No Ordinary Angels scooping the same prize in 1999; Compagnie F/Z recognised in 2002 for Throat; and last year NoFit State winning in the physical/visual category with tabú.

    This year there are two circus companies on the shortlist: Cirk La Putyka with La Putyka and All or Nothing and Strange Bird Zirkus with Uncharted Waters.

    The winners will be announced 25 August 2011 at a ceremony at Fringe Central, starting 6pm.
